Training Needles Off

Look at me. I'm a big girl now! See? No training needles.

I managed to get far enough using the bamboo skewers that I was able to change over to two Addi Turbos. It turns out that I just happen to have TWO Addis in that one particular size. (I think it was a purchasing mistake, and not an extravagant overindulgence on my part.)

Round 32 is complete, and I've sewn a single bead to the very center of the shawl. I will also put a bead at the end of each of the large petals, and one in every loop of the outside edge. I love the way the beads look in my Peacock Feathers Shawl and thought I would do it again. Not a LOT of beads (too heavy), just a few as an accent.

Marlene, I love those colors! Out of this world gorgeous. So its another nice for you. One of these days, I'll pick up my needles again.

Marlene, that's gorgeous so far--I can't wait to see the finished shawl!

Once again, you've inspired me, and now I'll have to add that to my list of things to do. I just got my very own copy of GOL and it's a bit overwhelming since I want to do just about every project. :-)
