Hey! I knit this shawl with beads!

I finished this shawl not too long ago. I like it. Jenn took this photo of me the other day at work. the color of the wall is just amazing.

I used two techniques that I hadn’t tried before. I combined two lace patterns in the same project, without making them flow into each other…just separated them into sections. I also Knit with Beads in the last few rows.

I absolutely LOVE the yarn! It’s Bijou Basin Tibetan Dream…a gorgeously soft, warm, and lofty yak yarn. I’ve swatched Bijou yarns before (thanks to my great friend Marly Bird, who gave me a few samples.)

And before blocking, I love this texture! AND…check out the beads!!

I caught the knitting with beads bug when Laura Nelkin was in Denver filming her Knitting with Beads Craftsy class.

  1. I love the color of the shawl and the beads!

    I also love the color of the sweater (or is it a shrug) you are wearing in the other picture.

  2. I’m taking her knitting with beads class too — and her passion is catching. Your own shawl looks great!

  3. Beautiful shawl! Knitting with beads is on my bucket lust, just haven’t gotten there yet. Can you tell the pattern for the green shrug please?

  4. Did knitapeace really mean “bucket lust”? LOL
    Anyway, I love Laura’s jewelry kits in the Spring issue of Knitscene – tempting enough to be my first bead project.

  5. I love the shawl and the shrug. Any chance of obtaining the patterns. I am going to sign up for the beading class with Laura, made her mystery knit-along shawl. Thanks

  6. So far, I haven’t written a pattern for the shawl…it needs a few tweaks! The shrug is from my Glam Knits book, which you should be able to find pretty cheap now! :)
