First finished project

Here is my first finished project from this book. It is the Spider's-web shawl. I used kidsilk haze and increased the repeats till I ran out of yarn. I did the 1/2 hexagon version. I love the shape of it.

I added beads to the bottom of it because it was so light. I thought they would help keep the bottom down.

I have not yet blocked it so it is going to be large.

Here is a close up of the pattern. You can see the transition from one pattern to another.

Now onto my next project
Happy knitting.....................Colette in MB

Boy was I surprised to see my name! You did a beautiful job, Colette. I love the colour and adding the beads at the bottom is a wonderful touch. I can't wait to see it blocked.

This is beautiful.. It almost looks like it doesn't need to be blocked. I like your color choice and the beads. (^_^)
