hey guys. it's funny, i wasn't even intending to enter this challenge... i just logged on today to post a completed birthday/christmas shawl for my grandma and realized, hey, this fits right in!

so, here's my entry: it's a shawl, based on a basic stitch pattern from mypicot. the stitch is theirs, however, i determined the shape, edging (my original honeycomb mesh pattern), and added all of the beading myself. 5 tubes of size 8 glass seed beads!

here it is...


and a close-up of the stitching:


and the whole cone: out of all this, i have about a 1" ball of silk left. pre-washed silk is rough on the hands.


each of the five tubes of beads had to be pre-strung individually, then worked into the shawl. i overnighted it to florida yesterday, so if i get a cell picture sent to me, i'll post it here as well.

thanks for looking!!!

The shawl is beautiful.  Nice work, and thanks for the link to mypicot.  I had never heard of it before.  What a great resource Smiley
