Beads are added to enhance the lace pattern and complement the gorgeous colour of Fyberspates Gleem Lace. I love the lace pattern in this shawl. In fact, I love everything about this shawl. And I wish I'd get it back before Christmas as I'd definitely wear it on Christmas Eve in Norway.
Albertine takes just one skein of Gleem Lace. If you don't have time to knit this before Christmas, why not add a skein of Gleem Lace to your Christmas list and then you can cast on on Boxing Day.
I'm really happy with the way The Knitter team have styled and photographed this shawl. It looks so scrumptious and luxurious.
And here's a close up to finish off. Look out for more of my shawls in coming issues of The Knitter. In the meantime, issue 78 is in the shops now.
