How perfect are these beads? And this pattern? The Storm Cloud Shawlette. I'm modifying it somewhat, to suit what I have. I'm going to string the beads on one ball, and use two strands together to knit this. I'll also adjust the needle size to give me the drape I want - not too loose, but not super tight either. The beads will be scattered throughout the shawl, twinkling here and there. I may adjust the size as well - making it a touch larger. Then I plan a solid line or two of beads right at the ruffle line, where the ruffle starts. This should give it some nice body. I'll probably make the ruffle a little more ruffly as well, and use the beads a little more intensely in the ruffle. I'm thinking I have enough yarn for at least a couple of these, which is good. One for me, and one for a special friend that I don't see often, but lives for this colour and shading.
