With beaded yarn costing more than $40 per skein, I decided I could string beads onto lace weight yarn for much MUCH less cost! 

It took two full days to string the beads onto one of the strands of Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud!  Then I put the yarn away for a time..... it took more than 4 years to finally decide on a pattern (many stops and starts) - and then only 4 months to finish!

The pattern is Fiber Trends Estonian Garden Lace Scarf/Wrap by Evelyn A. Clark, which I have used a few times.  The body of the scarf is a simple to memorize repeat pattern with YO and Ktog only on the knit side.  The yarn is a beautiful heathered lavender - purple.

That is lovely!  I am always amazed that anyone can knit with such fine yarn.  I can barely knit with worsted weight. lol  You are very talented!

It's lovely.

I've just decided to learn to knit lace so that I can knit myself a wedding shawl (in 6 months... am I mad?). If it turns out as pretty as your scarf I will be very happy.

I really admire your dedication to beading  Cheesy

It's a beautiful pattern - the perfect choice. I love seeing the before and after blocking shots too. It's amazing what  a transformation occurs to lace!
