Mystic Star

I finished my first circular shawl!!! I somehow got the harebrained idea that I’d like to finish it in time for the Sheep and Wool Festival. I started it on 25 March and finished on 4 May, in a record (for me) 41 days… and a few nights. It was fun but I don’t think I’ll ever try to do anything this big in that short of a time again :shock: Finished measurements are about a 6ft (1.8m) diameter.

The pattern is The Mystic Star by Anna Dalvi and I used Miss Babs Yasmin - Dark Fury. It’s a bit hard to see in these photos, but there are also about 2500 Japanese 0/8 beads and 24 magatama orchid lined beads, one on each of the points, woven in. The seed beads are a crystal AB and a blush AB. They were a lovely combination, but it’s really hard to see the colour differences on the shawl, which is a bit disappointing. I guess I should have used a lighter coloured yarn.

Anyway, those interested, the ravelry project page is Mystic Star.

Exquisite in every detail! The shawl is such lovely work. I’m in awe. Enjoy wearing it.

Beautiful!

lovely !
