an actual FO

Finally, I present to you:
Plucky Hanami!

Plucky Hanami

This stole was knit as a sample for Sarah, the Plucky Knitter, who sells her hand dyed yarns here. It is a merino/silk blend, and it is so smooth and slinky! The pattern required quite a few more yards than I had at my disposal (880 yds versus my 600 yds), so I had to improvise... I worked a provisional cast on, and knit the second half of the stole first (the "falling petals" or "asymmetrical YOs"), because it has a fixed number of rows. Then, I knit the first half of the stole (the "basket weave") until I ran out of yarn. I worked 3 repeats instead of the recommended 7 (actually, I started the 4th repeat, ran out of yarn and had to rip back!). Finally, I grafted the two halves together. I used US 4 Lace Addis, which are awesome, but smell like metal (you know what I mean?).

I tried saying "prune". It failed.
Prune!
