I can't resist the sparkle!

Before I went to the cottage, Nancy and I tried a new yarn store with a Wednesday night Knit Night. We've been looking for a place to get together on a regular basis (the Guild only meets once a month). We found one - The Yarn Store, which is a subsection of The Quilt Store. (the wonderful fabrics there are a whole other post...)
We had a great time, and will definitely be back, but while I was there, I found a great kit using rayon thread, and sparkly beads. You all know how how weak I am in the face of beads, right?

I had to have it, and of course, had to string the beads right away, and start the scarf. Picture this about a metre in length, with a lush, long rayon fringe on each end.
I even dug out the star filter for my camera to give you an idea of the sparkle:

I am such a sucker for these things...

Getting caught up on my blog reading. I LOVE all your projects - sweater, wonderful asocks and the beady, sparkly item. Happpy you found a weekly knit group too.

LOVE the sparkle! Very cool!

That's awesome for finding a knitting group. I have a weekly knit night and I don't know what I would do without it. Those ladies are my therapy and keeps me going! It's a nice circle of friends to have.
