Just quickly!

I have my last class before the summer hols today so just a very quick note to say that Tilia is done! I cast off yesterday and then blocked it as well. That was a job and a half especially as I thought it would be good to do it outside and then had to bring it in as it rained.

I found it tricky to get the shawl to look right and re pinned it several times until I finally got the hang of it, will put up pictures tomorrow when I have more time. I thought 3 weeks and 4 days was not bad going for me. Am now casting on Lotties 'cindarella' version which has drop beads instead of knupps (I don't mind doing the knupps but we thought it would be nice to do the prom shawl a bit more funky).

More soon ........

Can't wait to see it! I bet it looks fab. Drop beads will look lovely on the pink, what colour beads? I found some seed beads the perfect colour in my stash and have threaded the whole pack on. I'm not sure there were 850 but I will just have to use them until I run out and hope for the best!

I don't think you are meant to thread the beads on first for this one! It is my understanding that as you get to the knupps you pass the stitch through the bead using a crochet hook? Please can you tell us which method you used beejay? I don't suppose it matters that much but you will have alot of beads to be pushing down the yarn thats all.
