I got my yarn yesterday! Very exciting. I wanted to run home and cast on right away. Unfortunately I had errands to do. I did get my beads as well but I need to find a way to put them on. I don't have a crochet hook small enough for the beads. I will probably just bend some wire to do it or something. I plan on making two of these shawls. One in the teal because that's the color I originally wanted, and one in the garnet, because the more I looked at the shawl, the more I saw flames in the border. They just scream to be made in red. Oh and I couldn't find teal beads in the right color for the yarn so I got silvery ones. I don't mind them standing out so it's ok. I can't wait to start this today! I will probably also use a size 3 needle because I almost always knit a little bigger than gauge.
