I had ordered some red lace weight yarn that arrived last week. may was a shawl I really wanted to make so while the power was off yesterday, I wound the yarn. I started the project and was disappointed in the pattern so I stopped, ripped it all out. Then I felt bad because I really wanted that shawl so I started it again and gave up, ripped it out and may try it later with a different yarn and smaller needles but . . maybe not.
I was determined to use that red yarn so I found a beaded cowl pattern in my library that I thought might be a good idea. It called for size 8 beads. All I have are size 6 beads. I am not ordering more beads. Got it? No.More.Beads!
The beads are probably too big but . . no one else will know but you and me and a beaded cowl with beads that are too big is better than a beaded cowl with no beads, right?
