One of my great aunts passed away very suddenly last night (she was my nana's sister). We're a typically tight knight Irish family and we're all pretty crushed. My great uncle however (her husband) is just positively devastated. He can't function right now and he's a mess. Apparently the hospital waited until my Nana and my parents arrived to tell him my aunt was dead, because it was clear that it was not safe to tell him until some support had arrived
He's a sweet, sweet man--just as my aunt was a sweet lady--and they were married for more than 50 years. I'd like to knit him something for comfort, so I guess I'm asking for suggestions for a male version of a meditation shawl. (I know guys can wear them, but he's not the type).
What do you all think? Have a favorite lapghan pattern you could share? Or suggestions for some different or smaller items that might be comforting? Thank you all in advance for the suggestions!
