Beaded Boa

I have just realised that I have yet to write about this rather lovely thing.

This was a sample knit for Alison Crowther-Smith, and it really is pretty.

Two shades of Rowan's Kidsilk Haze - Ultra and Mist are used here - plus lots of clear silver-lined beads to outline the bell-shaped ruffles.  The beads add a pleasing weight, and mean that the boa will drape beautifully and be well-behaved in wear.

This was great fun to knit, and it is quite gloriously decorative.
