haruni

We had beautiful weather this weekend and it was a perfect time to step outside and take some pictures of my finished Haruni knitted out of HandMaiden Sea Sock (which by the way is one of the most luxurious yarns I have ever knit with). I thoroughly enjoyed knitting this shawl pattern and I'm ecstatic about the way the pictures turned out. Jasmine, my daughter, was of course my lovely model again!









Happy Sunday!

This looks really beautiful. I've been thinking about knitting this pattern but I've (1) never knit a shawl before and (2) am not sure I could read the chart.

Andrea, If you've never knit a shawl before, I would highly recommend trying this pattern. It is intensely detailed. Emily Ross, the designer, did a wonderful job writing the pattern and it not only has charts, but row by row written instructions if charts are not your thing. Plus, I've seen your knitted garments on your blog and you're knitting skills are upto par for this pattern, IMO.

The shawl- and your daughter- are STUNNINGLY beautiful. I've been excited about making Haruni for a while, and now I don't think I can wait to cast on!

You're daughter is lovely! And the shawl is EXACTLY what I'm thinking for my Handmaiden Yarn too!!! I actually hand dyed some of my own yarn this week---some llama with silver sparkle---and I tried to dye something that looked like the Sangria color I got from Handmaiden just to see if I could do it. Yeah I didn't come close hahahaa! I appreciate it all the more now!

It's beautiful. Good Work on the shawl:-) it's been in my ravelry queue for a while but i've never got the chance to start a haruni shawl yet. Just need a little inspiration:-)

A beautiful shawl and an even more beautiful model! I love the picture with it wrapped around her, almost like a cowl; I wouldn't have thought to wear a shawl like that, but it looks like a nice way to keep the chill off and for it to stay in place.

Thanks for sharing!

Your shawl turned out beautiful!
From the look of your daughter wearing your shawl, it might not be your shawl very often :)
Another easy shawl to try that has lots of character is the Echo Flower Shawl.

Ve~ I started on this shawl a few days ago... man, that Sea Sock yarn is beautiful!! I may be having remorse! LOL... This is my first lace shawl. I'm excited to see how it is going to turn out. After seeing yours, I think I will add one more repeat of the Chart A pattern before starting on B. Thanks so much for such lovely photos of a beautiful model and shawl!
