Christmas Gifts for Moms

Now that I'm married, I feel like I should make things in two if I want to make something for my mom. :)

Here's the first set of gifts... originally, I planned to make these shawls for two friends who are getting married next month. However, I decided to make something more appropriate for the brides and felt that moms would appreciate lace shawls more.

To be fair, both shawls are from the same pattern - Flower Basket Shawl. I've made 2 previously and love the pattern.

This one is for the dude's mom, made with 2 strands of Knitpicks Shadow in Vineyard Heather.

This one is for my mom, knit in 2 strands of Elann Peruvian Baby Lace Merino. This yarn is thinner, and as a result, a bit more lacy.These will be Christmas gifts!
