There is a KAL for this shawl from 1 April - 30 April 2014 in the Curious Handmade Group KAL thread. Everyone welcome to join in.

Spring is about renewal and light. Warm sun and buzzing bees. Colourful, delicately scented blossoms everywhere.

Fireflies Rising is a crescent shaped shawlette, created by increases at the edges on both sides (no short rows). The lace pattern is really simple and gives a pretty, blossomy detail.

This spring shawlette is a quick, easy one skein accessory. It could be worn over the shoulders with a floral dress or around the neck as a scarf to ward off those sometimes chilly spring breezes.

Now, from the thick grass, the fireflies
begin to rise:
up, then down, then up again:
lit on the ascending flight,
drifting simultaneously to the same height,
–exactly like the bubbles in champagne.
