Maikell Shawl

leave a comment »

So I started the shawl early August and try to set aside about an hour or so a day and have been doing really well with it I think.  My first attempts weren’t very good with Nupps so on this particular project I am substituting with 6/6 black seed beads and I am loving what is going on with them! I took pictures and will certainly be posting them at the bottom of this entry.

Who am I making it for?  Well, I intended on gifting it to my sister-in-law for either her birthday or Christmas (depending of course on when I finish it), but I may end up keeping it for myself LOL.

I am using Castle Fibers SCAB lace-weight which is 50%silk and 50% Merino Wool:
