Mystery Stole 2 and Wedding shawl

I've been dutifully trying to finish the stole for my sil's wedding. It is for her. Her colors are pinks and I thought this light pink is more interesting and wearable than white. It is my design, if you want to call it that.
It is basically a trellis chart with a beaded border. I wanted to make it easy because I drag my feet on deadlines. I also think anything with ksh is very elegant and appreciated while something you might slave over will not be understood. I bought the beads from Earth Faire, I love them!!! They are triangular and catch the light so beautifully.

I'm also working on the mystery stole 2. It looks like it is going to be gorgeous. I'm using stash-knitpicks shadow in vineyard. It just looked like a perfect match to me!

I'm also spinning some of Lisa Souza's bfl in petroglyph but am considering plying it with something else but haven't decided what. Akkk!!

Both look stunning! I love the way those beads look. I'm going to have to try that some day.

I love the simplicity of the wedding stole. I think sometimes we tend to overthink and overdesign projects when a less busy pattern looks best. Good job!

hmm- I must have heard about the wedding shawl earlier... I stopped by Erica's this morning and bought some laceweight to knit myself a wedding shawl... any suggestions on patterns?
I was thinking a Faroese (so it stays on) and my dress is Sincerity #3070

I remember your red caplet from a while back- but wasn't that a modified pattern?

ohhh your trellis design is lovely. I've always liked the triangular beads on knitting. They 'sit' so nicely.
