What are you most proud of? It's always an extra challenge to work with a variegated yarn and not have your lace pattern or beadwork get lost. The color of the beads, and the yarn worked perfectly together!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Swatch the center panel before you cast on for the entire shawl!

will the pattern be available any time soon?

Gorgeous! I love the way you wear your shawls.

Love that your beads seem to match the multiple colors of the yarn. Did you buy them already mixed?

Tried this first in lace weight yarn, it was like knitting with string and beads were everywhere but on the loops they were supposed to be. Doing the large in fingering weight and it is coming along nicely. Going to be my wrap of choice this coming fall and winter.
