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.
