New Midnight Shawl

I wanted to share pictures of my latest lace shawl. It was knitted in just 2 weeks by myself and my test knitter, Pixie, did hers in teh same time frame too. I actually did most of the knitting in the 2nd week as I was in London for part of the first week.

My version is knitted in YarnAddict Exotic Lace (alpaca/cashmere/silk) and has beads added. The beads are added using a tiny crochet hook.

Pixie's version is knitted in YarnAddict Silky Merino Lace and doesn't have beads. Pixie's tension is much firmer than mine and she knitted a shorter version.
I still need to get some better pictures of this shawl but weather conditions have been conspiring against me. Today looks hopeful though. It's not raining (yet) but a little dull.
