Shawl for a Hundredth Birthday

My 61 year-old husband’s grandmother is turning 100 in a couple of weeks!!  This a woman who got a speeding ticket at  90 years old after buying a red sports car. She lived alone in her own home until 96 when she fell and broke her hip.

I thought a shawl would be the perfect gift to brighten up even sleep or lounge wear for someone in a wheel chair. I did not want it too long, warm or wide so that was easy to use sitting inside.

The pattern I used as a base was called Shimmer and Shine Scarf, not that mine shimmers or shines but I liked the look of the scarf.
