Don't hate me because...

I'm going to Hawaii (with the kids in tow, so, you know...).

Instead, share your knitting brilliance.

I need a shawl. Not a winter shawl. Not a wool shawl. Not a heavy shawl. I need a cotton thing I can knit in like...a five hour plane ride. I'm thinking size gazillion needles and worsted or DK cotton.

Whaddaya got for me, eh?

I'm going to go look at my books tonight, but I wondered if anyone had done this before. I don't really want to just garter stitch a triangle, but...sigh...

Or even a super-fast, lacy (read big needles, small yarn) sweater or bolero. Just something to put on when it drops down to... 70°. 

65°?

Again, you know...don't hate me...

No ideas on the shawl, but just remember that if you go up a volcano, it does get cold. Very cold, for those of us used to Tucson.

Oh, you. Let me think on it. I am glad you are going somewhere fun.

How about one of Hemp 4 Knitting's hemp blends? (You don't want cotton... No memory!)

Also, Madame Leiderhosen? That means "Mrs. Unfortunately Pants!" (Better than "Leberhosen"--Liver Pants--or "Liederhosen"--Song Pants!

I heartily second the YEAH for fun. You all deserve it.

Awhile back I read on Insubordiknit that she made her second clapotis on ginormous needles to make it all lacy and luh-oved it. That would be an easy plane knit. If you think you could crochet it's super easy to make something lacy out of thicker yarn. I've seen the "just a little privacy wrap" and the "easiest shawl ever" from crochetme both done very well, and they're super simple.

Well, I don't know about a shawl in 5 hours, but flip through Wrapped in Comfort if you get a chance. Julia's shawl is very light, there is a faster version on size 11 needles. The smaller version of the water turtles shawl is on size 10 and 13 needles.

Sorry, I don't knit with bast fibers, so when you ruled out the garter triangle, I'm basically out of ideas. You could find a scarf pattern you like, and up the grist and needle size which would make it a shawl. Other than that, sorry. And, because I know you are deeply worried about this, I don't hate you - I have no real desire to go to Hawaii at this point in time.
