Discontinued. This digital pattern is no longer available online.

Inspired by the first ever Nerd Girl Yarns retreat and the special colorway dyed for the event, My Internet Friends are Real!, this shawl features random spiral cables and an applied edging to represent the great distances so many traveled to come together in person for the first time after nearly a decade of cultivating an incredibly close online community.

Written for a single skein of sock yarn, this pattern is exclusively charted. You can start the applied edging at any point, when you have the requisite amount of yarn left over, so there is a level of leeway in the sizing of the shawl.
