At last after finishing the beading and blocking, I can finally reveal to you my Sea Glass Crochet Shawl. I am very proud of this project, the final stitches look like lace and it feels as light as a feather. The tiny glass beads are a perfect subtle, addition and they catch the light as you move.
I took my time and I tried my hardest to finish the ends as I finished crocheting each pretty motif. There were 34 in total! I did not always succeed but even setting myself the challenge fun.
I endured a last minute setback when I ran out of yarn with only about 50 stitches to go. It took me a week to obtain a new ball of lace weight yarn. Excuses, excuses?
The beading was a joy and the pattern was self explanatory. You can see them twinkling on the border edge below…
