Mobius shawls for every season

While knitwear may seem like a bad idea during spring and summer, a shawl is perfect for those days or nights that are a little chilly, or for air-conditioned buildings that make summer feel like winter. Surely I'm not the only one who spends her summers feeling colder than in winter because businesses keep their thermostats at 65 degrees.

Whitaker Knits offers Mobius shawls for those evenings or mornings when you need a little something but don't want to wear long-sleeves all day long. They perfect for the office or for going to air-conditioned stores because they are easy to put on and take off.

Mobius shawls are joined in a circle with a back seam, so they slip on easily over the head. They have one twist, like a Mobius strip, which gives them their name. The front can be adjusted to fit high or low, to cover more of the neck or more of the arms, whichever the wearer chooses. The shawl leaves the hands free for typing or shopping or driving.

When everyone else in the office is hot and wants to "crank up the air," you can be comfortable in your Mobius shawl. When everyone else in the car wants to leave the air-conditioning on, and you're freezing, don your shawl.

Most Whitaker Knits hand-knitted Mobius shawls are made with Lion Brand Homespun acrylic yarn. It's thick and warm, but very flexible. The colors are vibrant and varied, as the photos show. Order now at www.etsy.com/shop/whitakerknits. Don't be cold all summer.
