Choose to knit this shawl in fingering or worsted weight yarn.
A kite reacts against the air to create lift and drag but mostly flies best in a strong wind.
This shawl is an honoring of friendships made at knitting retreats. Especially those friends who return year after year and embrace you heartily! Friends who have also lifted you up during strong winds throughout your time apart.
And serves to remind you of friendships rekindled, reacquainted, reestablished. . .
