Amongst the shales and shores of Georgian Bay, in quiet times around dusk, you just may spot a Great Blue or Grey Heron, fishing for it’s dinner in the shallow waters. They are peaceful birds, on long, graceful legs good for wading.

I was once told as a child, that Herons represented self-reflection – teaching us to follow our intuition and to know ourselves well.

While certainly never quiet (especially on delivery days), this shawl was made with the flock of wonderful ladies in mind at Grey Heron yarns in Collingwood, Ontario, Canada.
