I saw this shawl and fell in love with it. I knew the pattern would show up better with a solid color but this yarn was calling to me from my stash and who am I to not listen when my yarn is calling me.
The border was so easy and Dona had been asking for a new dishtowel so here's my Calais inspired dishtowel.
See how pretty that border stitch is in a solid color. Just beautiful.
I have always wanted to knit something with beads so when some online knitting friends suggested we do a KAL with these mitts I jumped right on the bandwagon. Knitting with beads is even more fun (why can't funner be a word) than I expected and I love how they came out.
