The Lori Shawl, my first real shawl, knit with Quince + Co. sparrow, which is Italian linen, in colorways moon + sans. It is different to knit with linen and took some getting used to, but after months handling it, my fingers miss it. This shawl was the most relaxing knit and easiest to take with me wherever because it is just garter stitch all the way. It turned out to be bigger than I expected, I ended up using 6 skeins. I made a few mistakes along the way, one little hole that I couldn’t seem to figure out how to fix, but I still absolutely love it. It is bigger than my kitchen table so blocking it was a challenge with three little ones around, but I made a spot on my bedroom floor and it dried quickly, so we managed. It feels so dreamy after blocking, the drape is perfect. I could see myself knitting this pattern again in a wintery wool for sure. I’m so thankful for this lightweight, summertime shawl and can’t wait to finally wear it!
