There is not much I love more than 80s music ear worms, so when one of my test knitters suggested I name this shawl True Blue, two things happened: I squeed with delight, and started humming and singing True Blue by Madonna on repeat, much to my family’s dismay.

True love, you’re the one I’m dreaming of, your heart fits me like a glove,
And I’m gonna be, true blue, baby I love you…
