FO Friday: Beaded cowl

First of all, thank you for all the warm welcome back comments. I feel very lucky.
 
Now, time to share some knitting! Remember that I had to frog the last project and started all over? 

I finished it!
 
I even made some new friends.



It is oh so soft made of one skein of Malabrigo lace. Check out the project page on my Ravelry for all the details. 



I'm loving the pattern, nice and simple. Want to know how I did the beading? I used a tiny crochet hook. Check youtube for a tutorial. 





One skein of the lace yarn is enough for this cowl and I can highly recommend it. It makes it an affordable project.

Hop over to Tami's Amis for some more finished projects.

  5. It is absolutely stunning and I think those beads work so much better than the others you started with. Lovely to see your gorgeous knitting again (and I love your nail varnish too!)
