Hanami Knit A Long

I am knitting Hanami out of Brown Sheep Naturespun Fingering weight in the Cherry Delight color. I am using the new Addi Lace needles size 5 (love them). This is a fun knit. The pattern seems easy to follow to me and I am using stitch markers (from Hide and Sheep at Etsy, love them) between repeats. I plan to make a scarf version of just the basketweave with some Silky Wool that I have and I plan to add more beads in the triangular sections. Cayli on the knitalong is doing that and they look great. My beads clash a little too much to add them throughout the shawl. I think it would work great on a scarf though and plan to try it after the stole is done.
My MS3 is in time out right now. I really am not sure if I like it in the yarn I am using or what. So, I plan to wait awhile and work on this one and the Bee Fields shawl (which I will start as soon as I wind the yarn, not sure when as I have had the yarn for a few weeks but haven't gotten around to winding it up).
