In today’s episode I’m back to my fantasy knitting queue, with a subject that’s very close to my heart. Shawls! They are such great travel projects, which makes them a great fit for the Summer Series. Any excuse to talk about shawls! We’re right in the middle of The Shawl Society, so at the moment my mind is even more full of shawls than usual. When I’m so busy designing shawls I don’t often get a chance to knit someone else’s patterns, so I thought I’d take this opportunity to let my inner shawl fangirl out to play. I’m chatting about some of my favourite shawl designers and some of the patterns I love most.
