I sometimes knit for our cousins, who raise alpacas.  I saved one skein of brown yarn, called Casino after the first baby born to their herd.  I wanted to try making a beaded shawlette, but had difficulty finding the correct size beads locally.

I managed to find some in an assortment of copper colours during our winter in the south.

 The mixture had matte copper beads, along with 4 different colour of glass beads with copper interiors.  I had a small crochet hook in my collection that was the perfect size to add the beads to the stitches as I knit.
It was difficult to photograph to show the beads, but it looks great in person....
See what others are knitting at Judy's blog, Patchwork Times.


  1. your shawl is fabulous. Just beautiful. I haven't tried beads yet, but it's on my 'to do' list someday.


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
