‘Highland Fling Shaw’ ->  the story behind this shaw is that a co-worker friend had one made for her by an Aunt at Christmas time.  I liked it so much I started searching on Ravelry (an online knitting and crocheting pattern website; if you are not a member you need to become one right now!  p.s. It’s free!) and actually found the pattern!  It is a super warm shaw/scarf and I love it just as much as I thought I would!
