It’s human to get a little bit lost sometimes. Songbird was inspired by the feeling of realizing when you’ve gotten off track and by how difficult it can be to find the way back to your true self. The path back isn’t always smooth. Sections of garter and stockinette make for easy knitting, while the two textured stitches add a touch of challenge. The result is symbolic of how every rocky step on your journey creates beauty in the end. May you embrace every opportunity to grow, and have the freedom & bravery to accept the path back to your true self. – Shannon Cook
After such a successful Courage Shawl, we were so excited to see what Shannon Cook had to offer next – and we were not disappointed! This beautiful triangular design with its fun tassels is the ideal transitional piece for the changing seasons.
