After beading for the first time in my life on the Susanna IC Mystery KAL, I found myself slightly obsessed with this new technique.
So I had to start something RIGHT THIS MOMENT, something that had beads on it.
As it happened, I had some dark green sock yarn in my stash, and I had these oxblood coloured beads. I thougth they’d go great together. So I started a variation of the Meandering Vines Shawl.
And then I looked at it again in daylight. And thought to myself, my, this looks very chrismassy … people I asked for their opinion didn’t think it’s too christmassy. One particularly kind knitter said it’s a shame that we’re so conditioned to think of green + red = christmas, and I could not agree more.
However, the seed of doubt has been sown. What do you guys think? Alright, or too christmassy?
