Evening Entertainment

My evenings over the last couple of weeks have been taken up with a few rows on the Aeolian Wedding shawl and I have reached the end of the Yucca repeats (I've done 6)

I really like the way the decreases stand out in lines

The beads are so shiny when they catch the light!

Rows are taking a lot longer now - I only managed the first 4 of the transition chart last night before I was too tired to concentrate - I need to cast on for a "simple project" - maybe my other knee high sock?
Some evenings I have also managed to fit in a few rows of Kristi from Cookie A's new book.Kristi
Slow going, possibly more complex than the lace! Colour coding the cables has definitely worked. Now by brain thinks - Green cable - hold at front k1tbl, p1! I still don't get those little cable symbols. I do love the Toddy yarn from The Yarn Yard - look how well the cables stand out!

Well will you look at that! Lovely lovely beading and lace! And Toddy is intriguing - must go and look at its composition!
