Hanami Stole

Just finished is Hanami Stole by Melanie Gibbons for the 60th birthday of one of my friends. The yarn is laceweight merino/cashmere from ColourMart UK and was knitted on a 3.25mm circular needle. The blocked size was 42cm x 157cm (17" x 61"). I particularly enjoyed knitting this because there was a variety of designs, basket weave, falling cherry blossom and finally a sea of cherry blossom finished off with a ruffle.

Kerry - I'm always impressed w/ your lace projects - because your gauge is much more "standard" then mine.

Thanks to all of you for your comments. Knitting can be a solitary hobby, but it is good to share with friends at MWK.
