About four years ago, during a difficult time in my life, I was doing what I often do to soothe my nerves: riding my bicycle beside the vineyards near my home. It was a crisp, sunny January day in wine country and I was enjoying the robins when I saw a streak of blue. And then another. Bluebirds! Not the usual Scrub Jays, but real honest-to-goodness Bluebirds. It was the first time I had ever seen one in person, and I knew right then that they were a sign that things would work themselves through.

This stole, with its bird wing motif and leaves, reminds me of that day and the cool blue sky.

Pattern includes both charts and written instructions. Ends are beaded.
