Spread your wings!!

wingspan shawl KAL

If you’ve been in the shop recently, you’ve probably noticed the awesome Wingspan Shawl knit by the talented Susan Nelson! If not, stop in and give it a touch. This little beauty knit up with just 1 skein of Jawoll Magic sock yarn, 440 yds, on sz 4 ndls. Jawoll is only the beginning—-how about Noro Silk Garden Lite or eye catching swaths of Malabrigo lace?!! The color possibilities and yarn choices are endless, really!

On Sept 13th, just for fun, the shop is inviting all knitters to join in a Wingspan KAL. Patterns are available on Ravelry or at the shop for free. With all the delicious colors flooding the shop, let’s see what colors make you fly!! With the sun setting earlier that little extra warmth will be perfect for late summer nights.

Stop in! Pick your perfect colors and start knitting your wings!! Oh—photos can be posted as we go along to share and inspire each other. Come KAL!!

FYI…There is also a Crocheted version of this shawl, if you prefer Crochet!  This pattern is also a free pattern on Ravelry.  Crochetalong (CAL)…I love it!
