Wedding Shawl

 



I'm thrilled to share with you the completed Wedding Shawl.  This is my favorite of all the Citron shawls I have knitted.  I loved the beads and how they clink on the table when you set the shawl down.  That is one of the most satisfying sound.  I also love how the beads add weight to the shawl.

I decided against a beaded cast off because that would have taken forever and I wasn't convinced I had the resolve to do it and I wondered if the beads would be seen.  I'm glad I choose not to add the beads at the edge because the bind off was over three hours long.

The wool is Shibui Knits Lunar and I highly recommend the yarn.  It is so very soft and a delight to have in your hands.

  6. So beautiful Karen! What a treasure for your (future) DIL. I can hear that "clink" now. A 3 hour bind off does sound unbelievable to me though! Well done and congratulations. I love the shade of yarn too.

  15. What a wonderful way to welcome the new bride into your family. That beautiful shawl is truly a labor of love. I have never put beads on a shawl or anything else. I hadn't thought of the sound they make when the shawl is placed on the table or the back of a chair.
