Hanami Success!

I did it!  I managed to finish Hanami!  It was touch and go there for a bit.  I am so happy with this!

It's currently blocking, and I'm going to take it outside for some post-blocking pictures tomorrow.  I managed to meet my goal of finishing this knit before the cherry blossoms were gone.  Every tree on my street, is heavy with cherry blossoms, and I now have my own little piece of the season.  

A taste of Hanami blocking

Would I knit it again?  No, but I am absolutely smitten with this one and I'm glad I knit it.

I stand in awe of you. The shawl is breath-taking.

Every time lace touches my needles things go south faster than lightning and terribly wrong all at once.

Very pretty. I'll have to add this to my que.
