Judy over at Patchwork Times has a Friday Linky for "What's on Your Needles" Click here! I do love my knitting! Here's what I'm working on now:
This is part of the beginnings of a shawl based on the pattern Meghan Jackson's Forget-Me-Knot Shawl using a gradient yarn crafted by Laura and Kelly at The Unique Sheep This is their Verve yarn base in the Peacock colorway; the four color graduated skeins total 400 yards.
The pattern calls for 430 yards of yarn and gives two options: nupps (a small multi wrapped bobble) or beads. As I'm short on yarn, I chose beads. They are quite subtle and as there are not many; they will not add much weight.
There are several ways to add beads. In my opinion, the least tedious method uses Super Floss... yep! Here is a link to a blog that describes the super floss method as well as other popular ways: Fleegle's Blog about adding beads
