This shawl was made for jemimah in the Use the Good Stuff Swap, run by craftylittlemonkey.  I LOVE the excuse to look through my treasured pieces in my stash, and make something lovely for someone who will truly appreciate it.  The pattern is the Elise Shawl, and is a free download on Ravelry.  When I first saw it, I was a bit intimidated, as it looks intricate, but after an initial setup of 6 rows, you repeat the same two rows over and over until you get the size you want, then add a simple picot border. 



The yarn is Darn Good Yarn's sport weight silk in Caribbean Current.  I decided I wanted to highlight the purple and deep teal splotches in it, so I added some iridescent glass beads along the final row, in the picots and the single crochet directly above the previous double crochet post.



Blocked it came to 44" across and 22" deep at the center back, and I finished with just 12" of yarn leftover!   Cheesy

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

So pretty! I love the colors, and the drape, and the close-up texture. Definitely a "good yarn."  Wink I like the way you've added the beads; really finishes it off beautifully. Hooray for properly blocking! I am dreading/looking forward to my first correctly blocked crochet project once I finally finish my Virus Shawl (which keeps getting bumped to the back of the to-do list behind swaps and life projects).  Cheesy

Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend.  Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.
