My Hotel of Bees

Wow! I never thought it possible to fall in love with a pattern but my word, this is just beautiful! This pattern is so beautifully written, so beautifully designed. It is gorgeous! I want to make a million if them. Honestly you should all try it out. It is wonderful. 

I made this shawl using Drops Merino Extra Fine. I chose these yarns as they were already in my stash. I bought them some time ago in a sale because I liked the colours but I didnt have any plans for it. I did have to purchase another 2 balls. I needed 3 grey 3 purple and 1 pistachio but I had 4 grey 2 purple and 2 pisatachio. I bought 2 extra purple such that when complete I would have 1 of each ball left over for another project. 

Here are some close ups of each section. 

The wings.
The openwork honeycomb.
The bees.
And the filet honeycombs/flowers. 
Honestly I think I will never take this shawl off! And I already bought more yarn to make one for my step-mother in law for christmas.
