This pattern is Wisp by Cheryl Niamath. It was featured on the online knitting magazine knitty.com a few years ago. The first time I made it, it was for my mother-in-law. I finished the main pattern, but I wanted to knit a different edging for it. I haven't finished that and that particular project has been hibernating for about two years now. :(

However, just last year, I made the purple version to wear for Irene and Kwasi's wedding on August 08, 2008. As I usually do, I cast on for this shawl a week before the wedding, and I finished it THE MORNING OF the wedding, while my hair was being done! Imagine that! It is a very simple pattern, and I loved working it, but I wanted to make it more fun, so I added the Falling Leaves pattern from the Harmony Guide Lace patterns book, and included some gold beads! :) It was fun!
