In Patterns, Scarves, Shawls & Shawlettes, Shop sample available, Worsted weight yarn by Shannon

Let me tell you a story. It’s the story of a love affair one knitter had with some yarn in her stash. She loved this yarn so very much, but couldn’t figure out exactly what it wanted to be. Until, that is, that yarn found its perfect complement. The rest is shawl-story (like history, only shawlier).
