A very proud day! My pattern for the Nēnē scarf has been published by Knitscene Accessories, 2014!
Light and airy as the feathers that carry them between the islands, the Flight of the Nēnē scarf (pronounced Nay Nay) is a tribute to the distant descendent of the Canadian Goose, the little known official state bird of Hawaii. Represented in the long continuation of three lace panels are the solitary flocks flying wayward on their journey south. Landing in the newly forming islands of the pacific, foreign, yet still garnering the warmth they sought, long off their trajectory these Geese were forced to make this land their new home. Their history is riddled with the dangers of extinction. Threatened as they are, perhaps they can stand to remind us that we never know the adventures—knitting or otherwise—that that joyously proceed us.
