Started Already

I have to confess that I already started. MS3 was done and I had nothing else I wanted to start but this. I am already through 4 repeats of the basket weave pattern and I love it. I have added a few extra beads and plan to use a few in the cherry blossom section too. Here is the progress so far.
Hanami Start
I am using zephyr that I dyed myself and the beads are some leftover opalescent pink from a beaded yarn I spun.
Glad to be part of the group...Cayli

that looks beautiful! I am always in awe of people who dye their own yarn!

Emily said...

That's beautiful - can't wait to get my yarn and get going!!!

Amanda said...

Beautiful. Makes me want to start knitting straight away.

Thanks for the nice compliments!

This is a shawl I just can not put down even if it means I only sneak one row in.

Love your bead placement. I have been trying to figure out where I want to add some more.

Wow! I think I must try the Zephyr. Your dye job is gorgeous.

Wonderful dye job!

And I see you're another one who added beads! I'm glad I did with mine - it adds just the perfect amount of sparkle!

I agree about working on it - this one pretty much singularly held my attention until it was finished!

And even now, complete and elegantly draped on the settee in my closet, still takes my breath away.

I'm anxious for it to cool down so I can wear it to work!
