Cherry Blossom Shawl Yarn

DSC03048
A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I had joined the Cherry Blossom Shawl KAL on Ravelry. The designer was getting the pattern ready to sell because the IK issue it had originally appeared in was out of print. Well the pattern is now available, I have a copy and I have my yarn. This is Silk Cloud from Shibui Knits in the Blossom colorway (appropriate, no?) Now the astute among you (or perhaps just the better caffeinated) will ask, "But didn't you just finish that big wrap thingy with pale pink yarn?" Yes, I did just finish the Silky Alpaca Lace Wrap in Geisha from Blue Moon Fiber Arts in Rosebud, but Rosebud is a warm, soft pink while Blossom is a cool, soft pink. Two different animals entirely, see?

That is so beautiful ... I almost signed up. Almost purchased the yarn. Almost. But alas ... I have a lot of lace waiting to be finished now.

Can't wait to see your's finished tho. Love that pink.

I understand your rationale completely. Somehow it gets lost when I try explaining it to the guy who also lives here.

Luscious, luscious yarn! Now if I would just bite the bullet & try lace knitting.

Beautiful yarn! This would also be perfection in your lovely Hanami shawl.
