We all have those single skeins of gorgeous fingering weight yarn, right? You amass these things, with the goal of making socks, or one skeins shawls.

The Wonder Shawl

This shawl really is a wonder to me: the construction is simple and elegant; the knitting is a pure pleasure, stitch after wonderful stitch; the shawl wears so very well; the color (Fruity Loopies – what could be more wonderful, color-name-wise?) just plain makes me happy; AND the shawl itself is a wonderful hug of a thing for all seasons. …

Flotus Shawl

This is the first pattern in the League of Busy B’s! As a tribute to Michelle (and all of our illustrious First Ladies past), and as a nod to the big knitting trade show being held in DC this year, the Flotus Shawl was born.
