Finished: Haruni (!!!)

I am feeling quite the high after finishing a project that has been in my queue for years.  Today, after 4 hours of a tedious Icord bind off, I finished my Haruni shawl.  Like I have said in previous posts, Haruni always felt like the "it" project for me... the project I would finish and feel like a "real" knitter.  I am not sure why it held so much weight in my book, I certainly have worked adventurous lace projects before, but I felt intimidated by the 15 page pattern for a long time.  I am happy to say that after about two weeks, I have finally arrived! And it is beautiful.

In other equally great news, I am already approaching the four mile mark of yardage this year! 


  1. So intricate, Shelli!! Way to go, girl!

  2. Oh. My. Gosh.
    It's absolutely perfect! I, too, look at Haruni as one of those "it" projects. I don't know if I'm ready yet- it looks so intricate and beautiful. And that bind-off looks LooOOooong. haha. Just beautiful.
