Well I guess this is the end of the bead-a-long for me... but not in a bad way.
Nope, I cast off my project today.My newest design - called Magpie - it's hard to see, but it's chock full of beads. I'm pretty pleased with it, for the most part. It's just... well... it's wider than I planned.
My plan was to make a wide, but shallow shawelette, absolutely glittering with beads. I was aiming for at least 60 inches wide and whatever depth I could get using the entire skein.
Well I used the entire skein - there's only a few yards left. But...It's really wide. 72 inches wide, and 15 inches deep.
to put that in perspective, it's roughly the same size as the shawl I just finishedNow, I could leave it the way it is and put the pattern together. Or... I could grab another skein, start over and make it deeper and not quite so wide.
What do you think?
