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...
