Anyway, back to the knitting. When it came time for the nupps, I decided to substitute beads, and I am really pleased with the decision for a couple of reasons. First, it looks so lovely. I used the leftover beads from my Celestarium. Second, when I finished binding off, I guessed that I would have run short if I had worked the nupps. I only had a little bit of yarn left, and if I had worked the nupps, I might have run short. So, it would seem it was the right decision. Of course, once the shawl was off the needles, I was concerned that it would be a bit small, but it blocked out beautifully, and I feel like it is a nice size. Now I just need to get an address, and then get it in the post.
