I have a question. With all the beautiful shawls, my question is, where do people wear them?
I never see any worn, even in Church. Thank You for answering.

I wear them at home - easier to get on and off than sweaters and sweatshirts as the central heat clicks on and off or the dogs go in and out letting in a draft from outside. They also make nice leg covers when napping in my recliner!

I wear mine in the air-conditioning in the summer...very easy to carry in my purse or on my arm.

Everywhere! I used to keep a simple shawl at work for when the air conditioning was too high in summer or the heat too low in winter....shopping, out to dinner, birthday parties, visiting friends, art shows, the theater, sitting on my patio...pretty much anywhere that I wear clothing, which only excludes the bathtub/shower.

Wear mine all the time, or at least if it's not to hot, really I think they are very useful.

I also wear at home while reading or knitting. I wear in church if I dont have choir robe on or restaurants.

My friend in MA asks the same question! My weekly knitting class is full of them, from the teacher down. I normally donate mine to local care center and cancer center.

I wear them to church and I see others wearing them as well.

I live in the Phoenix Arizona area so I don’t get to wear my shawls nearly enough. I think they are elegant and cozy. I will wear my shawls whether they are in style or not. I love my shawls.

I take one along when I know air conditioning will be on at friends' home, our congregation Bible meetings, weddings (again AC) doctor's offices. Some of mine are purely functional while others are more fancy. Also across my legs in same situations. I don't personally like triangles because more often than not I sit on the tip and can't adjust it but I make them long enough to wrap around my shoulders and wide enough to cover most of my back. I also wear them shopping held together with a pin. Those made with fingering or sock yarn can be an accessory to an outfit in the spring and fall.

I wear mine to church or out to the store or where ever including napping my big chair. As a matter of fact I am going to go put one on now because I'm cold.

At home watching TV, knitting, reading. In restaurants, theaters, doctor offices,...any place with AC or low heat. Outdoors on chilly days. In the car. Whenever a sweater is too much, but I need something.

I have a friend who makes the most beautiful shawls and wears them to church, and every where. I’m making one for myself and want to wear it instead of a jacke on cool days. I also have capes that I can take with me Incase it is chilly in a restaurant, or the theater.

I’m wearing one now. It is a little chilly this morning. I take one with me especially to doctors office. Their air conditioning can get chilly.

I wear mine nearly every time I walk out the door.
