I started knitting the Lotus Blossom Shawl from Fiddlesticks Knitting last August, when I went home to Toronto for a little vacation. I knit most the shawl there, then came back to Boston and finished the rest of the knitting in pretty short order, leaving only the bind-off to do. Of course, since the bind-off involved scary bobbles, I put off finishing it until earlier this month, and of course it wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it would be. Only took a couple of hours or so!
Here is a shot of the stalks (top) and blossoms (bottom):

This was a very enjoyable project, the yarn was lovely to work with (Fiddlesticks Country Silk in the Autumn colourway), and the pattern was incredibly clear and well-written. I would definitely recommend both!
