Notes

Impulse purchase of sale yarn with the intention of doing a beaded swallowtail, did the budding lace section then decided i wanted something different - how unusual! Just made it up as I went along, for once i got away without doing any ripping back, but tbh it isn’t what i had envisioned in the first place. All part of the journey i suppose. I did keep the beads though, but by god that’s finicky. Bring back nupps! Thankfully i had help - by the time i finished that picot cast off i’d have gone stone mad, otherwise.

(The name comes from lord of the rings, Galadriel gives Frodo a phial which she says is “the light of Eärendil, our most beloved star”. There’s a picture up there so you get the idea.Yes, I know how geeky that is.)
