Aeolian Shawl

I started the Aeolian Shawl (the Purple Shoulderette version) project about a year and half ago with Malabrigo lace yarn and tiny white pearls. This was my first attempt working with beads and a size 0.05 crochet hook. I got this project idea from a knitter who was also taking a sweater design class at Stitches that year. She was wearing a finished Aeolian Shawl, and it looked so beautiful and elegant. I immediately picked up all of the supplies I needed from the knitting convention and started this project. However, I gave up after ten rows. It was so complicated and required my 140% concentration! Something changed last weekend... I really needed that nice Addi Turbo lace weight circular needle, so I was encouraged to finish this Aeolian Shawl and free up my lovely knitting needle!

I am only a few rows away from finishing this! Wohoo!

I will try to take better pictures of this when it's finished because the color is just so lovely. I wish you could see it in person!
