Hmm. I like the idea of her being Euterpe or Erato for the lyrical side. The cables remind me of birds.

I am dying to see what Calliope (Cally-ope, if we're talking NOLA streets) will look like, though...

The shapes in the edging and insertion make me think of a lyre, so I'm going to guess Terpsichore.

My guess is that it's Erato.

I think Erato, as well. I agree that it seems rather lyrical.

Definitely Calliope.

Polyhymnia

Hmmmm. I think she is GORGEOUS....but that's not a muse! So I think it is Euterpe because she is the "giver of delight"!!!

Terpsichore, she looks like a Terpsichore. And she is beautiful, I can't wait til you release her to us!

I want to say Polyhymnia. The cables down the back remind me of the interweaving of the lines of the early polyphonic melodies. The lace is the embellishment that was added later.

I say Euterpe with the central cable motif representing a flute.

She is truly lovely. I say her name is Terpsichore. See you in a few weeks at Stitches West!

Calliope!!! (I really don't have a thought process on this, it's just my favorite Muse name)

Oh My! Soooo beautiful! My guess is Erato because it feels poetic! Cannot WAIT to knit this. Thank you!!

Another vote for Erato from me. (That colour!)

I think Thalia fits her. Beautiful!

I'm going to guess Erato because she's sometimes shown holding a lyre, which the central cable and edge motifs look like to me. Plus she's the muse of love poetry - it is February and the shawl is a Valentine's color.

Blogger aprilquilts said...

I see Calliope. I love this shawl and I'm looking forward to it.

4:45 PM  
Blogger Marianne said...

I think it will be Terpsichore because she is the muse of dance and this shawl is graceful. The cables look like a pirouetting ballerina. The beautiful pink color lead one to think of gorgeous ball gown on an enchantingly dancing beautiful woman.

Erato, being February and all!

Blogger AthertonCA said...

There are six Calliope patterns on Ravelry; there are three Thalias and one Terpsichore. Erato is too much like errata, which makes me think I'd be making and fixing mistakes. I'm going with Euterpe. Whatever it is named, it's beautiful.

5:21 PM  
Blogger Michelle said...

I'm going to say Calliope as well, because the cable up the back reminds me of a carousel horse's post, and Calliope reminds me of Carousel! (Convoluted, yes?)

5:36 PM  
Blogger Tina said...

Erato.

I agree with the same reasons that the previous poster mentioned.

Love Poetry... Valentine's Day.... the color also notes V-Day and the Lyre (basis for modern day harp) for the lovely music played in the background while one reads one's love the poetry she's written him. The poetry that she wrote enfolded in the shawl that echoed the love she feels wrapped in whenever her Beloved looks at her.

Hard to pick, but I think Polyhymnia. Something about it says hymns, refined and beautiful.

I'm thinking Euterpe because Her name means "rejoicing well" or "delight" Pink ... and the cables look like twining tunes. Rav mygrammadid

I think is got to be Erato because the cables remind me of the Cithara or lyre's that you seen in Greek art.

It would also be a nice link in to February to have the goddess of love poetry featured.

I think Erato, the braid down the middle makes me think of the wreath she wears around her head. Also she is the muse of poetry and what better month for poetry than February. I can't wait for this pattern to be released.

Polyhymnia, because the cable kind of looks like a stalk of wheat.

So hard to pick a name for such a gorgeous shawl. ^_^

Thalia. She is the muse of geometry and grace. The spine of this shawl is representative of both.
