last in, first out

Sorry! As I am an accountant, I couldn't resist using the term (accounting for inventory term) 'LIFO', for of all my current WIPs this was indeed last in and first out. It never even made it to the list in the sidebar.

I needed some plain vanilla and this fit the bill perfectly. Nothing I haven't said previously. The Malabrigo was lovely to work with, blocked nicely, and is still very soft. I think this will be yummy up around the neck......just not anytime soon!

Just before the final cast-off row I visited a local bead shop and got some natural matte beads to add to the points. I think it was just what it needed.

Very pretty! I love lace in white, and I love adding beads.
