The end of April finds me on the Atlantic shore of Florida, seeking continuing education in St. Augustine, Florida. I love to stay on Vilano Beach when I am here. Given the beautiful blue of the silk yarn, Ivy Brambles Pure Silk 20-2, I thought it rather appropriate to name May's shawl Vilano Beach. Every month, I think that month's shawl is my new favorite. Here I am, thinking it again.

I meant to do this quarterly, but March got past me and I have April's shawl done and it was released yesterday. While shooting pictures of Pineapples and Pearls, we also shot some pics of New Beginnings, Chocolate Covered Strawberries and Trillium, just to show how well they can ALL go from Winter to Spring.
January- New Beginnings
February- Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Trillum- back view. I love this shawl so much, I had to show it to you twice!
Finally, April's shawl, Pineapples & Pearls. Click any of the buttons to get your favorite pattern today!
I forgot to mention, that all 12 shawls are available for purchase individually or as a collection. If you get the ebook, you'll get all 12 patterns as they are uploaded for the price of 10. That means you'll get 2 free...which 2, well, does it really matter? This button will take you to the link for the ebook. The buttons above will take you to the individual patterns. Happy hooking!
I have been busily working all month on April's shawl. I struggled for awhile with a name for it. My Dad looked at it and said, "Pineapples and pearls". So I decided that was what it wanted to be called. I introduce you to Pineapples and Pearls.
Why Pineapples and Pearls? Because there are some pretty little pearl and citrine beads finishing the ends, as you can see in this close-up shot.
Elegant and lacy, Pineapples and Pearls proves cold weather isn't necessary for shawl wearing. Shawls are great for summer-time, too, to cover up that little sundress when needed, not to mention to keep your shoulders warm when you enter an air conditioned building.
I know, the pictures are kinda corny, but we had fun taking them! Buy your copy of the pattern to make your own version of Pineapples and Pearls by pushing the button below, and don't forget to let me see your finished shawls!
