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.
That is a lovely shawl and the beads make it even more beautiful. I think they glow like opals and I can even imagine the satisfying clink! Congratulations on a wonderful FO!ReplyDelete

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.ReplyDelete
It's absolutely gorgeous!ReplyDelete
My goodness what an achievement, it looks amazing. Made with love, nothing could be better.ReplyDelete
*claps* A terrific finish, Karen. Can't wait to see it worn by the bride.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous! I’m sure it will be well treasured by the bride!ReplyDelete
It is such a joy to behold. A masterpiece!!! Thanks for the yarn tipReplyDelete
That shawl is beautiful! I love sounds like beads clinking on a table, too. Somehow comforting. The beads that you chose are perfect for that lovely yarn.ReplyDelete
It's good to be back blogging!
Karen, the shawl is absolutely beautiful. What a lovely heirloom you have knitted for your future daughter-in-law! xoReplyDelete

It is so beautiful! The bride-to-be will love it!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
It's beautiful, a work of art.ReplyDelete
Wow Karen, its beautiful. I do hope the bride to be loves it too. I still can't quite get my head round a 3hr bind off!ReplyDelete
