Stalled Calendula

Well it’s not stalled exactly, but it is moving slowly.  I had actually expected to have an FO post for you by now, but I always underestimate shawls when there’s beading involved. Beading really slows things down (though it’s worth it) and this shawl has a lot of beads

Iv’e only got about 30 rows left, so I’m hoping I can finish it before the weekend. But I’m not making any promises.

Sorry for the fuzzy shot – I was too lazy to go back outside and retake when I realized it was blurry – but as least you can see the beads. Normally, I go for a bead with more contrast, but I had nothing in my stash that would work. These are almost the exact shade of green as the yarn, but with a foil gold centre, so they at least add some sparkle. Naturally, it will all look much better once it’s off the needles and has had a good blocking.

    The shawl is beautiful even unfinished! I like the beads you used as the bit of gold adds just a touch of sparkle. Just a little glow among the beautiful green yarn. The shawl will be such fun to wear.
