Haruni

On the last day of August, I finally finished Haruni. The Haruni I thought I'd finished on the way back home in the train. And who thought that that frumpy bit of yarn would turn out so nice after blocking! After frogging back to chart A, I decided to add an extra repeat, because I wanted it a bit bigger than it was when I first finished it. The second time round the change-over to chart B was much easier.
I really enjoyed knitting this shawl and especially because I had the pattern on the eReader we had on loan from the library. I just finished it in time, as the eReader has to be returned on Friday ;) Guess what will be on my Xmas list...


I'm not a 'hard blocker', and noticed that trying to block such a large shawl on a lits-jumeaux is a nightmare... There's that massive gap in the middle, where you can't stick pins. Problem! Have to think about how to do that next time...
So, lightly blocked, not with all the crochet loops pinned down (that would have taken forever...), here's my pink Haruni!
It's light, it's lovely, me like!

Yarn: Manos del Uruguay Lace, purchased at Wereldwol, just over a skein. With the number of repeats in the pattern, it would have been less than a skein.
Needles: 3.5 mm Knitpro circs
Pattern: Haruni, by Emily Ross
Changes: added an extra repeat on chart A. Used the crochet bind-off

Gorgeous shawl!

I love the color too!

You can actually borrow an e-reader from the library? That is wicked! Wow! I don't think we are allowed to do that here.

Love. Love the colour, the pattern, the leaves, love how it looks on you. I don't even know what an ereader is. Yes, the word culchie was applied to me often when in Belfast.

Beautiful! I finished a Haruni this year and wish I had added more repeats as mine turned out a little small.
