  1. This is beautiful…I have sooo0 many projects I have to complete by Christmas for others…  this is something I want to make for myself…..  maybe I can start it the day AFTER Christmas.


  2. I just purchased an ebook subscription to this magazine.  I love this design!  However, I can’t knit from a chart in the ebook.  It would be great to have a place where those of us who subscribe e-fashion could print a copy of the chart only. 

  3. Completed this shawl as a request from my mother-in-law.  First time knitting with beads.  Wasn’t terribly difficult, just took time.  Giving it to her for the holidays.  Hope she loves it!
