Treasury Time: Sea Spray Blue
Sakura (Cherry Blossom) is richly symbolic in Japan. Hanami festivals celebrate the beauty of the cherry blossom and for many, are a chance to relax and enjoy the beautiful view. This involves the centuries’ old practice of picnicking under a blooming sakura or ume (plum) tree.
Here’s Yarn Alive’s tribute to Sakura:

Yarn Alive finally commenced today. Due to Japanese holidays this month, we have not had a chance to meet until today – but the wait was worth it!
Today’s class was all about “Ruffle” yarn and making fun, crazy, twirly, ruffle scarves out of it. The yarn is 100% acrylic with a net type of material. Each yarn company that sells this kind of yarn calls it a different thing, but basically it is called “ruffle yarn”.
