Sisters and shawls

I'm making my mother a shawl because she mentioned in passing that her sister has ten of them--meaning that she doesn't have ten. I asked my own sister some styling advice, whether I should use an accent color, and she said, "You know she won't like it anyway." Because my mother never likes anything and has been known to reject--yes, reject--gifts.

I showed it to my mother and... she didn't like it. She said she likes things with sleeves.

I told my sister and she said, "And you're shocked!" She told me so.
