Pele: Goddess of Fire, Volcanoes, Wind and Creator of the Islands. Keeper of the Dragon that lies within all. Feel her fiery warmth as you wrap yourself within her magical fibers. Watch the blazing glow as her beads capture the sunlight. Touch the silken fiber that slips through your fingers like molten lava. Doesn’t every goddess deserve to be pampered with a shawl like this?
Notes on project:
First time knitting this pattern and it was so easy. Nim Teasdale’s patterns are always like this. Well written, easy to follow, look as if you created something extraordinaire. Her Draconis pattern follows suit. I loved knitting this. I would have been finished two weeks earlier but I ran out of beads and needed to order more. Twice. I totally miscalculated the need for beads on this one. Glad I waited for more to arrive as I love the beaded picot bind off. I decided to block it pointed instead of spreading out the lace edge so it would look more fierce. A dragon shawl needs to be fierce.
