Summer Bead-A-Long

I finally have pictures to show you on my very first beading project!The pattern is the Heart-to-Heart scarf by Sivia Harding. I'm using Slinky Cat (loves my Slinky) in "Steel Magnolias".

Mom gave me a quick beading lesson last Sunday, and it was waaay easier than I expected. A little tedious, but easy. I'm using the crochet hook method.

But I know right now you're looking at the picture thinking.... beads??? What beads????

Lets move in for a closer look.Hmm...so you can maybe see one or two.... let me help you out...
Okay... so the picture really doesn't do them justice - the are a silver lined medium lilac with a slight iridescence, and in person - they really sparkle!

The color of that yarn is striking! Good work!

Those beads are lovely with that yarn; good choice! I think they'll sparkle nicely, and add a nice bit of weight to improve the drape of the shawl!

I think they'll show a lot better after blocking. Very pretty!
