Once upon a time, there were two best friends. One was named Haruni and one was named Amille.
No . . that’s not how the story goes!
Haruni is a gorgeous shawl (and a free pattern!) that was added to my Ravelry library in September 2011. Don’t ask me why I haven’t made it before but I love it and over 10,000 knitters have made it!
Before going any farther, let me add that I talked to the designer, Emily Ross, and have her permission to use her photos, which were taken by her husband. So, photo credit goes to knitterain.com.
Every time I see someone else’s Haruni, I say I’m going to make one but this time, I really am! I have my yarn almost picked out. I’ll use either purple or a pale, yellowish green.
But how this all started is I saw another of Emily Ross’ lacy designs, Amille. It’s so lacy and so feminine. I just love it!
Amille is done with lace yarn and lots of lace knitting. I’ve never knitted with laceweight yarn, though I know I can . . I’m still a bit nervous about it.
I may use this green yarn and green beads.
Can you barely see the two beads there? I think those are a pretty good match.
I’ve used so much green lately, I have a blue, almost like a cornflower blue, that I may use if I can find beads that match it.
I should finish the test knit today or tomorrow and then I’m going to make a hat for a friend’s granddaughter, then I’m going to start Haruni and then, if I succeed with that lace knitting, I’ll make Amille.
