Hanami Photos

So here's the infamous Hanami. Overall I have to say I'm pretty damn happy with it. I can see a few spots where I fudged it up a bit, but you gotta be looking for them to notice the mistakes. I LOVE the color. It's such a beautiful shade of purple. It should probably be longer but that's my fault for running out of yarn but it still works ok. I did get it finished before my fitting for my dress so I can take it with me to see how they'll look together. Yay!

Now on to the pictures. There will be a few of them.

My favorite part of the entire shawl is where the basket weave transitions into the cherry blossoms.

My modified cherry blossom ending with just a few rows of garter.

I love it. I'm so proud of myself for tackling this for my first shawl ever.


  1. It's really gorgeous! I think you did a fabulous job with it, regardless of your running out of yarn. :)

  2. YAY! The garter looks fine at the bottom me thinks. And yes, I'm in love with the colour (purple is awesome) And it looks wonderful. I've often found that other people never notice the mistakes, only I do. Well done :) You've inspired me to start knitting a shawl as well!
