We Are Getting Somewhere Here

I finally have some knitting to show you. I am only about 4 weeks late in getting clue 1 of the Slow Bee Kal complete. But, better late than never right? As with all of Moni's designs this one is absolutely gorgeous. I'm knitting it in Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud in Smoke on US size 2's. The beads are from the Beadwrangler, they are size 8/0 clear with silver lining. You can just barely see the glisten of the beads. This baby calls for over 2900 beads!!!!!!

It is a faroese style shawl. The photos show the center panel and then one of the side panels. There are three side panels, a center panel and then a repeat of the three side panels. The center panel photo is on the left and the side panel photo on the right.

The beads add a nice sparkle to the shawl. My mouth dropped when I read about there being 2900 of them! I enjoy seeing how the lace and the beads compliment each other.

Awesome, Peggy, just awesome. I haven't kept up with the Slow Bee at all and just finished my Dem Fischer sin Fru last night. I'll be knitting right along with you on this one for sure. ;)

It's Sunday night, I wonder where Peggy is?
So, what will you do with this absolutely stunning shawl when you finish? or is it the journey?

I finally finished up clue 1 just this weekend. I am saving and printing out the clues so I can work on them as I have time. Ha! What's that?!?
