What's in a name? There's always a story............. This pattern got its name from my husband. He frequently messes up the old idiom "To kill 2 birds with one stone." When he did so again recently, I laughingly told him that I was going to name my next pattern after him. Driven by the desire to create something new, coupled with the need to lighten my stash load...just like that, a shawl was born (and this one "kills 2 stones with one bird")!
