Summer Bead-A-Long Update #7

Both shawls are in the same state ... haven't been worked on this week. It was too hot to knit this week!

Recently I purchased Adorn by Laura Nelkin. It a collection of patterns, 3 are published now and the other ones are coming ... oh the suspense! I HAD to (i.e. couldn't wait) go to the yarn store Friday night and get beads and yarn to try the Butin Collar.

The pattern called for 2 colors of beads, I wanted to do more. So I had to take a little extra time to thread the beads on and make sure they were in the right order.

And here it is blocking. I don't have a clasp, so its not finished yet. I hope to find one today. Then I can post finished photos.

That collar is so pretty. Your posts are really inspiring me to try and knit with beads at some point soon!
