Blaise is a Saints name with a fiery image, which suits this shawl just right. I think it has got spirit!

This shawl is also surprisingly easy to knit. Of course you can create a two color version like this one, or how about a tone on tone, or one with a variegated and a single color yarn? Either way the beads add a welcome touch of whimsy, as does the elongated Picot edging.
