Hanami

Pattern : Hanami
Finished size : 16"x65"
Yarns: 1.5 x 50g(450 yards)Habu Tsumugi 100% Silk
Needle size : 3.5mm
This is not my first stole attempt but is my first stole as FO!
This lovely Habu Tsumugi Silk yarns in pale green was given to me from a dear friend as a Christmas gift last year.
It was not smooth on my needles(prehaps because of my sweaty palms) but it turned out to be very very soft after a wash.

I dint really stretch it, only lightly block it and the size turn out just nice for me.

Both the stole and the photo are gorgeous! Nice Work! BTW, you asked if the item on my blog was a sweater and the answer is 'no'! It's intended use is to provide laptop privacy in public places. Can you imagine???
