If you make the shawl for her shoulders (also can be used as lap rug) it is nice to use pattern (or just knit extra and turn up and stitch sides) with pockets at each end. These pockets are great for cell phones, paper/pen, meds, etc.. Velcro can be used to close these pockets and contents if shawl used for lap rug at nap.
