Finding Inspiration :: Summer of Beads and Lace ::

Posted by vicki brown on

After spending a day catching up with the last few episodes of the Knitmore Girls Podcast recently, I decided that evening I simply had to knit a lace shawl with beads, as you do.
With my brain power at an all time low and with a distinct lack of 4ply or lace weight yarn in my stash, I eventually decided on Martina Behm's Brickless, adding beads simply at the points.  This feels a little like it might be cheating a bit, but I'm loving knitting it and it makes me happy, so all is well.  I've since finished both this and another lace and beads shawl just a simple.
However I was inspired to hunt out some much more intricate, beautifully lacy and beaded shawls for possible future knitting.
Here are some of my favourites from Ravelry.
