I’m traveling to Scotland and Ireland for my wedding / honeymoon in June 2023. Spending 6 days in each country, I am inspired to design a shawl that each place I visit will hold a special meaning to me. For you, dear knitter, I hope you find enjoyment in each stitch. A little research into each county has been provided so you, too, can enjoy the journey!
