Shaelyn – beginning of a series

Here is Shaelyn #1.  Thanks to Tricia who blocked it and modelled it (pictures edited by Alice).

And now Shaelyn # 2
This time, I’ve used Faith from Moda Vera (Acrylic, Mohair and Wool).  It makes the shawl fluffy and soft.  Shaelyn #2 seems a bit wider and longer than the first one.

I have been experimenting too and added some beads on the last repeat of the pattern.  I’ve used the ‘Insert as you go’ method.  It is a bit tedious, but the effect is really nice.  The beads are visible on both side, and an additional bonus, it adds a bit of weight to the knit which makes it fall nicely.
