Hi! I'm checking in too.
I don't have a blog so a lot of this posting busines will be new to me. Please forgive me if I goof up!
I can't wait to start Hanami... except that I will because it's going to take all my lace knitting attention to finish MS3.I have the pattern already, and I will be looking for a good yarn. I'm rather attracted to the idea of doing this in silk too... I suppose the Japanese theme and the silk seem to be a good combination.
I lived in Japan, for a very little bit, when a child, and DH spent several years there teaching English, so there is an emotional connection for me to this stole as well as the pure visual admiration.
Be "seeing" you all!
