In my dreams I’m a caped crusader, using my superpowers to set the worlds to rights. But as a knitter, I’d rather have a soft warm shawl than a costume cape. A simple design like this would keep everyone’s attention on the pretty yarn and away from my secret identity. Knit in worsted weight with some fingering weight stripes (for aerodynamics!)
