I'm so sorry I haven't had a chance to answer questions earlier.  I've been moving my sister into college in Atlanta. 

ragamufyn:  These were only a few of the beads my mom has in a basket behind the front door.  I used about 50 beads, probably, and I didn't even make a dent in the basket.  (My sister and I have lived here all our lives, and we would always throw fits when Mom would try to get rid of the beads.)

krebstar5: The scarf is amazingly heavy.  It feels like I've loaded my necks up to the chin with beads, but it's not unbearable, and I can still move and everything. 

night_owl: I broke the strands and twisted the last bead on two strands together.  (Does that make sense?  That's how we always fixed the broken ones when we were younger..)  Halfway through, I found that it was best to break the part where the two beads were glued together off entirely, because it had a tendency to break while I was knitting.  (But that was the nice thing, even though it broke, it never unraveled, because the beads would just get stuck together before they did any damage.)

apixiegrl:  I'm so bad with naming things...  but you can feel free to name it if you want.  Let me know if you do.

bijouxmaster: Steal away!  But, you might want to make the scarves thinner than I made them, maybe two or three stitches, because the scarf did get rather heavy and bulky.

Everyone else, thanks so much for your comments!

This is so fun.  I think there's a designated mardi gras night here at the bars...   How is Mardi Gras, by the way?  Is it as super-crazy as it's always portrayed to be?

It wasn't my cuppa when I was living in New Orleans -- at least not the French Quarter (too many people).  But some of the Uptown and Mid-City parades were lots of fun, especially early in the season before all the tourists came.

This is fantastic...I never would have thought of this, but now that I have seen it there are a few people I could see making this for.

oh that's pretty, I love beads! I would totally knit one of my own, if I knew how to knit (note to self: learn how to knit!) Would it be possible to make the scarf more narrow? I bet that'd be neat if it were more narrow and could be worn as a belt!

wow..how did I miss this?  I wish I knew what size needles. You could knit a curtain too. Someone gave me huge bag of these, all colors, shapes and sizes. Grin
