    That is absolutely beautiful, Chelly. Do you have more to show us? And how it is done?

    I look forward to seeing it Chelly. I have a friend who is self taught and she does fantastic work. I did simple things. Mostly when I was studying in college to keep my hands busy and fingers flexible as note taking during lectures and research wore them out sometimes. No problem when typing them all up later, but sadly, I cannot type my crocheting up. ;)

    I was about to say, "That don't look like no granny gown," until Al said what he did.
    So I'm not going to say it, but I'm thinking, 'that don't look like no granny gown.'

    I don’t think that there are any age specifications about when a person can wear a shawl. Actually, it was probably older women who more often would wear a shawl in earlier times, because our bodies tend to not hold heat as well when we get older.
    I think that it just depends on what a person likes.
    Here is a picture of our dear departed Ina I Wonder in the lacy shawl that I knitted for her the winter before she passed away, and she loved wearing it.
    People not only wear them around the house for extra warmth, but some (like the one that @Chelly Ali made) is beautiful and could be worn with more formal clothes for an evening out, by someone of any age.

    Ya know, I think I’m going to have to look up Rosie Grier (retired NFL star) and see if he can’t make his way to this forum and more specifically, to this thread. Some of the stuff he did is pretty intricate albeit, his style is more into needle point rather than crochet.

    Most of us guys wouldn’t know a shawl from a scarf or a bandana but the idea of someone actually sitting down and creating a wearable object and a work of art is a skill not many people do much less are as good at it as my wife or @Chelly Ali.

    That's very kind of you. Yes, Mr. Grier did needle point. These skills were standard back in the days of home economics in schools. People with hand skills for building, growing, cooking and producing goods and services, will have a lot to barter with. Those of us who have these talents would be well advised to start making stacks of useful items. (Blankets, gloves, scarves, socks, face masks(with filters), coats, sweater...etc.). I pray you and your dear ones stay safe during these trying times.
