Here is another Knit-a-Long project! It turns out I really respond to outside motivation. This one was in the Fans of Wolle’s Yarn Creations group.

Pattern: Reverse Psychology by Mindy Ross
Yarn: Wolle’s Yarn Creations Color Changing Cotton, 100 grams in Peachy 2
Needles: US 5
Start Date: July 11, 2014
Finish Date: August 8, 2014
I used TOHO 6/0 beads in a frosted peach colorway. I also used a 1.00 mm Fleegle Beader to apply the beads. This wasn’t always super successful. Maybe some of my beads were a little small. Some of them were a little tough to get on all four strands of the yarn.
Here’s a closeup of the beads:
The pattern was written out line by line. It was a fun pattern. A little random, so I feel like I could have done it a number of different ways and it would turn out close enough to the same. I had a bit of yarn left over so I did some of the rows of the extended pattern. I wanted to use up as much yarn as I could because I wanted to use all of my last color. I blocked my shawl pretty straight across, but I could have added little points too.
It’s a slightly weird shape. Extremely long and narrow. It’s not quite a natural shape to wear. It involves a lot of arranging. But I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I love the colors. This skein of yarn was the most umm, vagina-like of all of my Wolle’s skeins.
I was going to rotate that photo but then got lazy.
A perfect little scarf/shawl/necklacey thing for the summer!
