FO pictures

This was going to be my previous post but I had to share the wrapping of the single around the axle. So I postponed this one.

I blocked the purple shawl and have worn it twice since then. It is the perfect size for a small shawl for me. I can wear it around my shoulders without having it up at my neck. My shoulders need the warmth but I hate things around my neck.

That is the shawl blocking. It is the only picture of the entire shawl that I have. I am not 100% sure I like the subtle beads. They add a nice heft to the shawl, which I like but most people don't notice them. If one is doing all the work to bead it, shouldn't there be some more bling?

Really bad, awful self-shot of me wearing the shawl to show the size
The heavy beading on the edge really makes it drape well.

I finished the green yarn and it is drying. I will post pics of that in my next post. After that there won't be as many FO announcements and pictures. I am trying to finish off what I have in-flight so that I can pack what I need and just have a few easy projects to work on during travel.

You are standing on your head!
I would prefer more contrast for the beads, but the are lovely, still, in their subtleness.
