Ready for Denim

I've developed a possible addiction to knitting with beads recently.  It took me a couple of projects to learn that if I buy beads that match my yarn perfectly... they will completely disappear into the pattern and offer no amusement beyond the sound they make when I lay the shawl on a table.  So when I started my latest project with some Malabrigo Sock yarn, I tried to pick something that would have a little more "pop"... but still work with the earthy tones of the yarn.



I've been relying on my 12 year old for photo shoots recently.  It's great because he takes lots of pictures... but we're still working on making sure that the garment I'm modeling is in focus, close enough, or even in the picture.  Assuming you don't want to see the pictures of my feet, I'll exclude those and share with you his pictures of my latest project...









The pattern was called Aase's Shawl, knit with one hank of Malabrigo Sock in "Playa" on size 3 and 5 needles and embellished with some size 6 beads in a matte brown. 

It is light and airy and will be go perfectly with jeans.  Just my style.
