And while we're disussing beads, (and we were,) I must bring up my Shipwreck, the longterm project with 1400 yards of yarn and 4600 beads.
Get this--it's done. No really! I beaded and knit and beaded and knit and finally, I have a lovely new shawl.
This shawl is so epic that I went out and bought a black dress just to wear with it. And then today I bought another one!
I keep hoping I'll get to take it out for a real photo shoot. So watch out--there may be more photos.
