Enter beads! Beads are shiny! Shiny = fun!
The act of beading is not as fun as having beads magically appear in your shawl, but it's a necessary evil. The beads-instead-of-nupps for the Big Orange Beaded Beast are itsy-bitsy and I've been using a cut-up dental floss threader to add beads. My newest WIP (pictured above) has slightly larger beads-instead-of-nupps, so I'm able to use the beading gadget method devised by my very clever friend.
Shawl #3 is on its way... Shawl #2 will be on the blog tomorrow!
