Knitting Rainbows

April 28, 2015

Most of my time at the moment is being devoted to my little hexie patchwork quilt, but I always have some knitting and crochet on the go to provide a little variety, and I've just finished this lace and beaded shawl:

I picked up this gorgeous merino and silk blended yarn from Skein Queen a little while ago.  The yarn is 'Lustrous' and the colour is 'Pearly Rose', which Debbie at Skein Queen describes as: "rose, lilac, golden brown with touches of spring green, pale blue and coral on cream. Randomly dyed".  So pretty:

Of course I had to pick up some rainbow coloured beads to go with it and I love how these work with the yarn, taking on the reflections of the colours closest to them in the knitted fabric:

Knitting rainbows – what could be better? 🙂
