My mom got married in June. I am so happy for her to finally have someone who loves her and treats her so good. When she got engaged, just before SAFF last year, I told her I'd like to knit her a shawl for her wedding. She picked the Shipwreck Shawl on Ravelry and we picked out the yarn at SAFF, ordered 4,000 beads online, and I set to work. I only used 2,000 of the beads, because my mom is disabled and I worried about it being to heavy for her. I finished the shawl in 4 months and 1 day. It was a very challenging but amazing when finished. Enough of my babble, on to the pictures!
After blocking! It really makes a difference, and it doesn't look very sparkly in the pics, but believe me, every way you move those beads pick up the light and just glimmer.
Thanks for looking!
