Thanks for all the birthday wishes!

kaua'i shawl, blocked

The shawl I started in Hawaii out of Koigu is off the needles and blocked – the pattern’s even in pretty good shape too. It’ll be ready soon. It didn’t use 2 skeins of Koigu as I’d hoped, but I’m happy with the size using 3 skeins – it’s closer to a full size shawl, 23 inches deep and 63 inches across the top. And it has a summery surprise in the stitch pattern!

It still needs a name though.

And since that shawl’s finally off the needles, I’m back on board with my Honeybee lace cardigan. It’s almost done, just the collar to go. Then I have to find some buttons, hmmm.

allllmost done

    I love how the honeybee is turning out. It’s definitely on my short list of cardis to make (once the pattern is out).

    I love the Shawl. I Think you should name it “Pink Hawaiian Plumeria”

    How about Hanalei Bloom (a play on the song Hanalei Moon) if you can’t decide between the plumeria (which is what it looks more like) and hibiscus names?

    Wow… I don’t consider myself a shawl knitter, but that shawl is just simply elegant! I look forward to the pattern!

    I love the shawl, and I like the name first suggested of Peek-a-Bloom because the flower is a bit of a surprise. I hope you share the pattern

    Ooh! I love the … is that a hyacinth? … the flower in the otherwise plain lace of the shawl. What a great idea! Sign me up.

    One thing I remember from my trip to Kauai and Oahu, was the Plumeria flowers or Frangipani. Your shawl and its flower reminds me of those flowers. I can still smell them!
