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!


Before blocking!




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!

This is just absolutely lovely and such an incredibly thoughtful and heart-warming gift.  I don't knit and don't know how such things are done, but I would love to see a closeup that shows off the beadwork.
