I picked Fino laceweight silk and alpaca in a lush 'old rose' color. It's probably a bit dark for cherry blossoms, but I wanted to try this yarn and the pink was just a bit too, too 'baby pink' for me.
Slightly belated introduction here. I am loving lace. Hanami will be my fifth shawl or full stole. There have been some smaller lace projects in there, too - cowls and scarves and socks and such. I am working on MS#3, on Clue #4 - but I'm being torn as to whether to 'wing or not wing'. So work on it has slowed to a crawl as I decide.
I have no other lace OTN at this point (I really try to be somewhat one or two projects at a time.), but in the 'queue' are the Bee Fields Shawl, the Bee Stole, Eunny Jang's Print o' the Wave in gossamer. AND I am looking at yarns and patterns for a wedding veil for my future daughter in law!
I still need to find the beads for this. I think the irridescent grey beads that I got for MS#3 will also look good on the Fino. I can't wait for us to start!
