Hello knitters. I could not wait to post these pictures. I finished the citron shawl last night and I am just so freaking excited and proud! Check it out:
I am not a big fan of shawls so I will wear it like a cowl. Here is the whole piece:
And here is my favorite part, the beaded edge:

Okay so here are the details. I found the pattern on Susan Anderson's blog. I loved it. The pattern is called Citron Shawl by Hilary Smith Callis. On Susan's blog she added the beads and increased the size of the shawl. I also did these steps. Here is the link to the tutorial for how to add the beads.

As for the yarn I used Madelinetosh lace weight yarn in alizarin color. It's the first project I have ever made for myself and I am pretty proud!

Finally, Nolan had his first ever Shamrock Shake in honor of Paul's return.
Twins! They are just too cute and sweet!

Until next time, keep knitting ;)
