Olympic Rainforest

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Correcting mistakes and persevering with finishing as part of the Ravelry Ravellenics, even after the official deadline had passed. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use lace needles with sharp points because there are a lot of nupps to knit through!

What you will need

  • Cascade Heritage fingering weight merino yarn
  • size 6 and 8 Japanese seed beads

Q&A with Mary Beth Loup

innerwave asked:
Wow - what a nice Shawl - I saw you in Mastering Lace. Nice Shawls you made there ... Especially the dark colored skywalker impressed me. Was that one black or what Color is that? I love the combination of this green together with the dark beads. Lovely...
Mary Beth Loup answered:
Hi and sorry to take so long to answer. Thank you for your comment! I really enjoyed knitting this Accola and can't wait to start another one. I have knit two Skywalker shawls: the first was red in Douceur et Soie mohair, and the second was in Araucania Huasco in blue. Some of the photos came out very dark, but here is a link to my Ravelry project page: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/xevvsmom/skywalker-2
