The shawl comes from the book Folk Shawls (Folk Knitting series) by Cheryl Oberle. Yarn used was Dale of Norway Baby Ull. I used size 7 needles and cast on 155 stitches instead of 195.

Here is Elliott with his Mom, Ginny, and flanked by my girls Laura and Allison. They grew up together and Laura and Ginny's birthdays were 3 days apart so one year they had their birthday together. Oh how time flies.
Welcome Elliott - what a blessing you are!
