Our ladies have been extremely busy recently and have knitted a veritable shower of shimmering shawls. Judith has completed this very lovely shrug with matching hat and wrist warmers:
While Linda, who must be in league with the elves because she churns out FO’s faster than a yak on speed, has recently completed this little lot:
Now, so many shawls landing all at once got me thinking – not always a good thing, as my nearest and dearest would tell you. For instance, I immediately thought whether there’s some other phrase to describe a shawl. A bit like the ‘over shoulder boulder holder’ that we used for bra when we were schoolgirls. I know, it was funny at the time, but now?
Anyway, for a shawl the best I could come up with so far (‘cos I’m still thinking about it…) is ‘warm air trapping shoulder wrapping’ – how’s that?
And then there’s the problem of finding a collective noun for a collection/group of shawls. Should it be a ‘shimmer’ because they can be light and airy? Or maybe a ‘gallery’ because they are beautiful works of art? Or a ‘comfort’ because they keep you warm and cosy?
Now it’s your turn to think – shower me with shuggestions!
