Computer woes

My computer is down so I won't post for a while, using Mom's computer to post this message. How I wish I were a computer genius so I could repair it myself!

Crochet shawl

I finished a shawl for mom, I hadn't mentioned it earlier because it was a surprise. I used free pattern from ravelry...."All Season Shawl" by Priscilla Hewitt. I made it shorter than the pattern called for, and changed the border trim to a simpler shell. It's made with Lion Brand Wool-Ease in Wood color.
