I have a friend who will throw a blanket over her shoulders to keep the chill away... and I mean over her shoulders! She bunches the blanket up and then wraps her hands in the ends of the blanket. I think I have the perfect gift for her. I made a shawl with nice deep pockets at each end so she can keep her hands warm ... or stuff her latest project. I can picture this free project keeping a lot of people warm. Check out the free directions to sew a warm fleece shawl with pockets.
