Not sure if this is the correct forum; but I want to share what happenned with a recent pattern over on my Yahoo! group (MMarioKKnits)

As many of you know it is used as a test site where I post my flights of fancy and various knitters work through the patterns and turn them into completed objects.

At the beginning of March a very "Japanese" feeling design took shape in my mind - and I posted it on March 11 as a commemoration of the earthquake/tsunami/nuclear disaster in Japan 3/11/11.

The VERY first completed knit of 'Sakura' was done by Aya in Japan. She did a marvelous job - the knitting is beautiful; English is NOT her first language and it was an untried pattern. She has posted the photos on her site at Ravelery (sear for 'Sakura' or for weib-aya)and I am so thrilled at the way this has worked out.

I was very active here before I got my own site, and in many ways KR still feels like "home" - I just has to share.

That is just beautiful.

So nice to "hear" from you on occasion. Just joined your Yahoo group.

I always wanted my own library but I didn't realize it would be all knitting books!

That's beautiful, MMario. The shapes knitted into the lace really look like cherry blossoms and branches, which I've never seen in knitted lace before. Just gorgeous. I favorited it.
