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.)

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