Beads, more beads … okay, stop beads now.

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?

Love all things vintage, especially knitting from the victorian era through to the swinging twenties.
