Just joined in

I am so glad I saw this on Melanie's blog. I bought my beads on Saturday and my yarn was waiting for me when I returned from work on Monday. I bought some Brown Sheep Naturespun Fingering in the Cherry Delight (I think that was the name, it was Cherry something) and it is a nice, dark cherry color.

I love to knit lace but the laceweight in MS3 is driving me crazy so I am will do this one in Fingering. I was at a knitting retreat in early July and a few of us had our MS3's to show off, not to knit on. Too hard with so much other knitting to look at. Another knitter started Hanami while we were there and it made me go home and download mine as soon as I turned my computer on.

I am really looking forward to knitting this one.

Welcome! It's such a beautiful pattern, isn't it. The first time I saw it I knew I had to knit it - even though I had only dabbled in lace and don't know if I'll ever wear it. But it will be enough to knit it and admire it!

What a great idea to use a cherry colored yarn! ! was going to use a lilac lace-weight I have, thinking it was spring-like. Now I am leaning toward a teal/green that I might actually wear--- what to do, what to do? So many choices!

Welcome! I think cherry yarn would be lovely. I can't wait to cast on.

It is a little brighter than it was on my moniter but I like it. I don't think of lilac or I might have gone that way.
