And the bead goes on and on and on and on

I spent hours yesterday pushing beads up to the beginning of the neverending ball of yarn. The remaining ball looks slightly smaller, but I'm not going to believe my eyes until the beads actually touch the shawl. And maybe not then.

In the meantime, I've cast on for another bamboo Tropical Tee (by Oat Couture), this time in coral. It's more easily portable than a ton of beads. It's a very easy knit, and I love the way my first one in bamboo drapes. And drapes. And drapes. I'm knitting this one in the round to the sleeves to avoid having to seam later. I hate seaming.

Beads are a pain, for sure. But the results are worth all the extra woork, I'm here to tell ya.

I'm so looking forward to seeing the end result of all the beading!

And I'm almost done!!! I'm on the last row, and I'm afraid I may have overestimated the number of beads I needed. Oh well, live and learn!
