I finally got my camera back, so I was able to take some better shots of the Aeolian Shawl I knit. I used a merino lace weight from Knit Picks called Shadow in the Oregon Coast colorway. I knit it with a size US 5 (3.75mm) addi lace circular needle and used 3mm round, ivory pearlized beads. I used 7 stitch nupps (as opposed to 9) in order to conserve yarn. I literally had 4 inches of yarn left over after the bind off! I knit the shawlette size as written using 440yds/50 grams. This was one of the best written patterns I've ever knit from and was a fairly quick knit. It's available, free, from Knitty.com.
