THIRD TIME'S THE CHARM, BUT I'M OVER IT
I love this pattern! I like the ferns in the central part, but mostly I love the leafy border with mossy lace panels in between. This is my third "Haruni". The pattern is available HERE, and there are previous posts with the first two projects HERE and HERE.
For this one I used Debbie Bliss "Angel", a lace weight silk mohair blend. The yarn is delicious, but very slippery. I was shocked to discover that if I started in on this project early in the morning my fingers were too clumsy to work this! I also found it somewhat of a burden to make a big project with plain white. Easy on the eyes, but boring. I need color!
This one was a (very belated) birthday gift for my daughter, for her prom night. Maybe if I live long enough I will get to see her wear it for her wedding. Maybe.
