Are you ready for The Journey?

This is a knitted shawl pattern, plus full written story and video guiding you along a journey.

•What have you been desiring? What dream have you shoved aside until the time felt right?

•It might be a tiny dream, or a huge one. Perhaps you are on a journey to love yourself. Or to write a book. Start a business. Be more mindful in your relationships. Spend more time creating. Find a new job. Start a family. Rest more. Speak your truth.

•Whatever your dream, know it is valid and worthy of your attention. You deserve for all good things to come your way.

•You will begin your journey in the Cabin of Complacency. You’ll venture through the Forest of Fear. As you continue, you’ll reach the River of Doubt. And, if you choose, you will climb the Mountain of Perseverance and be rewarded with what lies at the top.

•As you reach each phase of the story, you will knit a corresponding section of your shawl.

•I will be your companion on this journey toward your dream. And know, many others are journeying alongside you. They are smiling when you’re smiling, laughing when you’re laughing and crying when you’re crying. We’re all in this together.

•Your journey awaits - are you ready?

•It’s like a caressing hug! It really hugs the shoulders and makes for the most divine wrap!

•We hope you enjoy this journey to the next grandest version of yourself.
