first beaded project

i used Kevat (spring in Finnish, or so i'm told) pattern
qiviuk 56 gr
on size 7
decided to make a st st section in middle both for more structure but also so it wasn't so bead heavy

That is gorgeous, Steve. I can see why the center was knit plain...that is some serious bead work. Still, the solid center adds to the beauty of the borders, in my opinion. Congratulations.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Steve...Amazing bead work! It really is lovely. I'm jealous of your fine workmanship and that you have things growing in your garden. We haven't seen anything even beginning to sprout here yet! Thanks for sharing.

What a lovely shawl! The bead work is beautiful, as is the color.

Really like the contrast of the plain section with the lace and beads.
