Beading experiment that I also tried with Lang Lyon (white with multicolored bead stacks) but the beads were too small.
Would like to try this with larger beads. Or stack some disk-shaped beads.
Gold colored swatch is a laceweight mohair experiment. It has a glaring mistake in it, so I used it in the pattern as an example of what NOT to do! But now I wonder about adding beads to it…
The bluish-gray version cost me SIX DOLLARS. SIX. (The yarn is discontinued and I found it at Tuesday Morning, a closeout store.)
