For me, I'm 42 and have never been drawn to shawls, but now that I've learned to knit (last November) I find myself very drawn to them. I have several on my list to make for myself, starting with the easier ones, of course.

I like thicker shawls, that one can wear in the winter around the house, if chilly.

I made a triangular Solomon's knot (love-knot) triangular shawl many, many years ago. I had forgotten how to make it but a google search helped to refresh my memory. About 5-6 years ago I made one out of a synthetic mohair type yarn for my 40 yr old daughter. I made that one starting from the top and worked down to the point. I know that I used to start from the point so I figured out how to do that and I am now nearly finished with another one starting from the point for a friend of mine. Drops Design has a free pattern for this method.

Well, I'm two years younger than dirt, but I have yet to see anyone around here (in Kansas) wear a shawl. BUT I do keep on making them and giving them away. What the recipient does with them, I don't know. oh yes, I'm beginning to use them in the winter, curled up with my Kindle.

Shawls are really very handy to wear and easy to put on and take off, you don't have lots of buttons to undo when all of a sudden you feel too warm.
