The arts of crochet and knitting are often discussed in competition with one another. Britt of [KnotBadBritt][1] and Sönna of [SunDaughterKnits][2] strive to unite them and highlight their similarities while honoring their differences. To do this, we created the the Sisters Not Twins series, a collection of projects that will include a knit and crochet version of each pattern. 
We have chosen two shawls as our first project that the feature the gentle variegation of  [Sprigs & Stone Yarn][3] while playing with texture. Freia and Fenna are women who move through their worlds with honor. Their names mean peace yet they are known as warrior goddesses. Strong in their convictions, confident in their femininity, and wise in their choices, Freia and Fenna inspire us.
