Sentimental Journeys

My Sentimental Journeys, named so because that's clearly what I'm on – are 3 asymmetrical shawls, each worked with fingering weight wool/silk blend yarn in a comfortable, contemplative, easy-to-remember lace.  I deemed wingspans to be perfect at 72-77" (182.9-195.6 cm) – a length wearable as both scarf or wrap – but should you feel otherwise, each is easily modified to accommodate your preference.  All are worked from tip to generous ribbing at their bind off end.  Yarn-over increases are made on every right-side row within ribbed edge boundaries until desired depth is reached.  Enjoy!
