Striped alpaca beauty: knitted lace shawl

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post about a shawl I was knitting for my mother’s birthday. It has been completed for a while, but I wasn’t able to post pictures until I actually gave it to her.

Now is finally the time to make the big reveal.

I am very happy with how the shawl came out. Generally I don’t used a lot of multi-colored or striped yarns, but this yarn worked wonderfully for the shawl pattern my mother chose.

As you may have noticed, the shawl has lovely little iridescent beads knit throughout. Adding the beads was more time-consuming, but the extra effort was definitely worth it.
