beaded scarf

I finished my beaded scarf for our Whoduknit KAL. The yarn is Zen Yarn Garden handpainted merino/bamboo/nylon and the beads are from Earthfaire. I loved knitting with the beads. If I made this pattern again I would add more than the 9 rows on each end that the pattern called for. I also added fringe and strung a few beads randomly on each strand then tied a knot under each one.

I haven't blocked the scarf yet, and I'm not sure that I need to.

Lovely scarf! I like the colors you chose, and how you added beads and fringe. Is this for you to keep? You deserve this pretty thing for yourself! I have a scarf pattern I bought when we were in Bar Harbor, and just need to work with it. Beads from my stash, which I think will work. We'll see.

Okay, I have the beads and the yarn (from Vigdis), it is the time I am having problems with.

I started my beaded scarf awhile back. I am embarrassed to say that I am only as far as the row after the first beaded row. I hope I can get back into it. I think I didn't totally understand the directions but something tells me that it is not that big of a deal? I am going to love the beaded fringe but will probably end up giving it away, you know how THAT is!
