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).

    Hmmmm! Appetizing, really!
    For the shawl, an other idea, to increase your choice : “flying flower”.

    I love shawls. I’m thinking of starting one for this Fall. Your stitch pattern is beautiful

    How clever!

    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?

  22. Becca Avatar

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

  23. Kerry Avatar

    Lovely! I’m thinking ‘hibiscus’ would be a good name.

    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

    Waikiki Wrap?

  26. Maryse Avatar

    Wow! Both patterns are looking very nice! Nice colors and very feminine! You’re so talented… ;-)

    The shawl is very innovative; I love it!
    And I like the shade of pink that you chose for your projects :)

  28. Elizabeth Avatar

    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.

  29. Rachel Avatar

    Oh wow that cardigan is amazing! Are you writing up the pattern, or is it someone elses?

  31. Christine Avatar

    Love the shawl and the sweater–both so gorgeous!!!

  32. Debbie Avatar

    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!

  33. Melanie Avatar

    Love the little flower! Cute :)

    I’d call it Daisy.
    And I love the Honeybee lace cardigan!
