As I start working on the open boarder, I realized I was going to run out of yarn. I dove into the stash to look for a similar-weight yarn in a contrasting yet complimentary color. I came back with some navy blue Harrisville Shetland (leftover from these mittens):
Used blocking wires, which I hadn't used in a long time.
Overall I'm very happy with it. Love all different colored beads working with the different colored neps in the yarn:
After blocking it ended up being a nice-sized shawl. Was a quick knit and used up lots of stash beads. I think the blue boarder works well- it picks up the blue neps in the yarn.
