For FO post today I’ve got my Drops of Firelight Shawl.

This is from the Boo Knits pattern of Morticia.

I named my version of this Morticia shawl Drops of Firelight due to the Black 4ply alpaca yarn and the amber coloured beads I used.

The pattern called for lace yarn but I envisaged something a little heavier so opted for the 4ply yarn, I used a size 6 seed bead and then followed the instructions as they were making no further changes.

This was a lovely knit of lace and beads and I have a stunning shawl to now wear.

    Love them! I think I want to learn to add beading – i just get overwhelmed when a pattern starts out “count out 1000 beads…..”

      Thank you, I just made sure I had a roughly enough and emptied them into a tub and used from that placing where needed, I don’t think I could be counting out either but beads sure add that element of sparkle and interest to a project.

    Beautiful! I think the beadwork would make working with black not so boring πŸ™‚

    • Ruth says:

      Yes it did liven it up some, black is not normally a colour I’d opt for but in this case both just seemed to be perfect for this project.

    My gosh. Super gorgeous! It would be fun to wear this to the ballet or opera.

    • Ruth says:

      Oh yes wouldn’t that be amazing! I’m afraid nothing quite that exciting appears near me and at a push I’d have to travel to the city over an hour away. I will have to find somewhere equally as gorgeous.
