Bead, beads, beads

Miss P is safely home, and Miss Peno is enjoying life out from under the bed again.

And I've been knitting:Work has begun on the smaller version of Magpie. Mom dyed this yarn for me last week (colour is Tempest), but the beads I'd been hoping to use didn't match quite as well in real life as they did in my head.

So today, Dave kindly offered to drive me to the bead store (the fact that the guitar store is right across the street might have had something to do with it.)

I got some lovely beads for the shawl
... and a few other colours, just for good measure!

Awesome! You got me thinking from your last post about Magpie ... I'm designing a beaded shawl too!
