Flower on my shoulder

A couple of years ago Bat (crazyvet on Ravelry) hand dyed 500 meters of  superwash merino yarn for me in a Yarn & Falafel swap.

Loved the gorgeous colours, but kept looking for the right pattern, without success.

Then Jenny (stolenpony on Rav) gifted me a pattern as a RAP (Random Act of Pattern) – The Hibiscus Shawl by Laura Chau, that had been on my wish list for a while.

It was a perfect match.  And a community gift!

Well, I finally got around to knitting it, in between other projects/gifts/testknits/KALs/and whatnot.

It’s a lovely, soft, open mesh shawl, with a big flower on the shoulder.

Hm.  Blurry picture.

Here’s a closeup of the flower:

Still a little blurry.

Kidlet was kind enough to model it for me, although it’s so hot out she felt the shawl was quite warm enough over her summer garb…

This will be a fantastic accessory when the weather gets cooler!  I predict much use.  And a warm reminder of gifts and kindness.
