Making Progress!

I am in love with linen and love the look, texture and feel of it as I knit my Shallows scarf. I am using larger beads then called for as the weight of the yarn is larger ( DK vs Fingering) so I will be working three lace panels with bead and two without.

So far I’m loving the look!

Until next time,happy knitting, crocheting, spinning and crafting!

      Oh thank you so much! I’m enjoying this project quite a lot and the pattern is one I’ve wanted to knit for a long time.

    I really love this pattern and after reading about different ways to put beads into knitted lace and seeing how you placed your beads. I’m going to have to try adding beads to my projects again. I’ve always strung the beads onto my yarn prior to knitting and it gets to be a pain, when I have to push the beads down the yarn as I knit. Its time for me to try adding them with a crochet hook.

      Ginny you really should try this pattern or one similar for placing beads. It’s a snap using a crochet hook and I find they tend to sit better and stay in place. Try it, you’ll like it ☺️

    Wow! I made one a couple of years ago but mine was in wool. I love yours! The colour is perfect for summer especially paired with a white sundress or over a T-shirt and capris.

    Tip: blue has a habit of staining whites. Wash and rince well, until the water runs clear then add some citric acid or white vinegar to set the colour. Note: some wool washes like Euclan really take out the excess dye, don’t be alarmed by this. Better blue water than blue on your white T-shirt!

    Lovely with rhose beads!
