I’ve completed my Strolling Round the Square
Beaded Shawlette (pattern by Manda Shah), and I totally love it! I could say it’s my new favorite project, but let’s face it, every project that I finish seems like a favorite at that moment. 🙂
But really, I loved working on the project. It was challenging and intuitive, and was a knit strewn with discoveries and surprises because of the missing errata that I mentioned earlier, which kept it interesting. 😉
I wonder if it would have been even more beautiful with beads added in as per the original pattern, but I love the shawl as it is right now. Anyway, for the yarn weight that I used, the beads would have to be larger, and I definitely wouldn’t want them pressing against my back.
As is the new norm for me, I’m again left without a yarny project for now, so I’ll come back with a new update when I manage to start on something. Until next time, then – and meanwhile, hope you stay healthy and crafty!
