    I personally would really love it! I would never think someone was cheap for giving me a handmade gift either! Maybe include a handwritten note about how you thought she could use it on the honeymoon ๐Ÿ™‚

    I had to choose the second option. I’m just not one for shawls and scarves. I have several that people have given me as gifts and they’re just hanging on a shelf. But I know lots of people do love them, so she may be one of those people.

    I think that is a really sweet and thoughtful gift.  I love receiving knitted hats, scarves, and blankets.  A shawl is so awesome!

    I was given a handmade, knit baby blanket for the birth of my first son and it remains one of my most treasured and unexpected gifts.

    to me yarn=scarf not “shawl”

    I’m torn I like heartfelt gifts but at the same time I don’t actually like the item itself.

    I wouldn’t love it (only b/c I’m not a shawl/scarf person), but I appreciate the heartfelt gift! We went on a crusie for our honeymoon. It was actually really hot even at night! In March of all months too!

    I had to choose the second option. I do like scarves whatever, and handmade items are great, but I just don’t like the one in the picture. It wouldn’t go with anything I own, and I don’t wear shawls. Does the fiancee wear stuff like this? TBH, I’d rather get a blanket.

    I voted for the second option.  I love scarves actually but I just think this is not the appropriate occassion to give something like this.  I’m sure that the bride is looking forward to receiving items for their home at her bridal shower.  Maybe even some lingerie.  A scarf in my opinion is a personal gift to her only and more appropriate for a birthday, holiday, or other gift giving occassion.  

    If I was to receive this I would be greatful of the time put into it, but at the same time would think it was weird.

    I love the color and pattern and as a knitter would be very impressed by the amount of work that went into it. I am not a shawl person but I would definitely use it as a scarf.

    Not for me but the intent and time is generous!

    @ByLandAndBySea:  I voted like the thought but don’t like it. I don’t like the fact its not wide enough to be a shawl and 2 the colours are too vibrant to be versatile in my opinion. I’d RATHER have something in a neutral colour blacks, whites, tans, creams, or pale blush pink.
