    Ever since my gorgeous Spun Sugar (100% silk!) in the Brambles colorway arrived from Yarn Chef, I have been eager to cast on with it. I decided that the Fountain Pen Shawl [ravelry] from the Spring IK would be a great match for the yarn. I got to work immediately…but was not really happy with the results. My nupps looked rather sad and skimpy. So I decided to replace the nupps with beads – swarovski crystal beads, to be exact. I love the way they sparkle and catch the light on a shawl. I visited my bead supplier on Etsy, placed my order, and today the beads arrived in the mail! I was so excited that I opened the package, compared the color of the beads and the yarn, verified they were a good match, and began happily knitting away! I am hoping to finish this shawl very quickly, as I would like to wear it to an event that is only ten days from now.


4 Comments to WIP Wednesday: Fountain Pen Shawl

  • Your yarn looks lovely, and I’m sure your shawl will, too. It’s just hard to tell at this stage. I did look at some of your other projects, and they are beautiful.

  • That is a beautiful shawl! You’re very ambitious to try to get it done in such a short time – I hope you get it finished for your event! 🙂

  • Your shawl is very beautiful, and I love that you’re adding beads. I want to learn to knit with beads so badly, but it’s on the long list of things I wish to learn to do.

    Thanks for joining in WIP Wednesday this week. I hope to see you again!
