JOURNEY, the latest collaboration between the Jane Richmond and Shannon Cook, was released for pre-order HERE. It is an inspiring collection of classic but modern pieces and I can't wait to delve into it!
I was privileged to be a part of the test-knitting process. I knit the "Onward" shawl.
It's the largest shawl I've knit and for me is as useful as a cardigan. I chose a blue that has turned out to be fairly neutral and works with many colors. 
I like to wear it (giant) kerchief style.
The shawl is reversible and patterned throughout, which makes for an engaging and fun knit.
I knit the shawl using 3 skeins of Spud & Chloe "Sweater" yarn. 
It gave great stitch definition and was easy on the hands for a wool-cotton blend. 
No pilling issues and I've been wearing the heck out of it!
All in all it was a pleasure and an honor to be a part of this "journey". 
Best of luck to shannon and jane!
