Initium is a fun, flashy asymmetrical garter stitch crescent shawl with short row stripes and a centred point on the bottom border.
Initium represents all the massive changes in my life coming to the perfect place for me. As I approach my 40th birthday, I feel like I have given myself the freedom to be who I want to be, and who I was meant to be!
