Dear Sun Spots: Back in 1982 when I lived in Village View Apartments in Wilton, an elderly lady by the name of Pearl Edwards gave me a pattern for a crocheted shawl.

It was very easy and very pretty. She said she had given it to several of her friends in Wilton and I lost this pattern and all the shawls I made for family are long gone.

I was wondering if anyone still had a copy of the pattern they would share with me? If so, please contact me through the column, and I will advise how to get it to me if you give an address or phone number. Thanks for your help. – Marge Grover, No Town.

Dear Sun Spots: Would you be able to find an address or phone number for the organization that helps people falsely imprisoned to clear their name? Any information would be gladly appreciated. – No Name, Lisbon.
