Surfing around for ideas to combine my two favorite things, tiki and knitting. If anyone knows of more patterns, please let me know. There's a purse pattern in Stitch N Bitch that shows how to make a knitting chart of any photograph, may have to use a tiki image for that.

I've used a crochet book to make crocheted leis. "Hawaiian Lei in Crochet" by Roberta Wong. Easy to make, good results. Photos on my blog:

I just started knitting myself a bag out of jute. It's a total experiment, but if it comes out well I'll post a pic! I'm knitting it in the round and plan to stop when I think it is big enough, so I'm not using a pattern.
