Two weeks in a row with an Unraveled Post? Could this become a series? I'm…
Sweet Dreams Shawl
I am absolutely and utterly in love with my new Sweet Dreams Shawl.
It is knit in Madeline Tosh Merino Light so it’s verrrrry verrrrrrrrry soft. And the neutral grey color is awesome – full of depth and richness. It’s a single and I was a little worried about that but it worked out just fine.
The pattern is fantastic. It’s well written and the charts are easy to follow and I truly enjoyed knitting this. I finished in less than 2 weeks time I enjoyed it so much.
I adore the beads. Can you believe I wasn’t going to bead this originally? I’m so glad I decided to do the extra work because they really make a huge difference.
I think they make the edges and points like like icicles. And to be perfectly clear – I only like icicles on shawls.
I know you all like modeled shots but the light was so pretty the other day after work and I just couldn’t resist snapping these photos of the shawl draped on my deck railing.
Photos after work in golden light with a beautiful shawl? Spring must be finally here!

It’s a stunner – well done!
Your ability to enable has not faded: it’s just that I am not knitting for me during Lent, but am working on projects for Christmas at Sea. Otherwise, my yarn and beads would be ordered by now. 🙂
Gorgeous! The beads add some lovely texture and drape.
Lovely! I’ve not tried knitting with beads but I might have to try now. I can see how the beads give it extra pizazz.
That’s really lovely! I wonder what’s next in your queue.
Gorgeous! It will be a perfect wrap for Spring!
Wow – it is a work of art. The beads really make it. I can’t believe that only took you 2 weeks! Wear it well 🙂
When I finish my current shawl-in-progress (made a mistake and am in the ripping back process), I definitely want to try a beaded one! That is absolutely gorgeous 🙂
Gorgeous! I’ve never knit with beads, but I just may make this — where did you get the beads?
That is stunning Carole! Someday I’ll need to learn that bead thing as well. Enjoy!
That’s just gorgeous, Carole! Can’t wait to see it modeled. I’m so happy for the light!!
Elegant and stunning! MadTosh is one of my favorites for lace. When I knit my Sweet Dreams I found the beads gave the shawl a much needed weight and the sparkle they impart is an exquisite touch. No wonder you love it, Carole!
You’ve made me a believer–the beads definitely add that extra something to this already beautiful shawl! The lovely soft grey color will be so wearable and your knitting is exquisite!
It’s beautiful and the beads are the perfect touch. 🙂
That’s stunning! A number of her shawls are on my short NAO list.
What a beautiful shawl! The beads really do add a little something extra and special.
So. Beautiful! Now I need to do a search of that pattern – I’ve been looking for a shawl pattern.
That really is beautiful; the color, the beads, the pattern, the light…all of it. Soon you’ll be sitting on a beach having a drink at sunset in it…that’s how I like to picture my shawl wearing. (In reality, its usually around my neck as an extra layer in my drafty house….)
Wow, Carole – THAT.IS.STUNNING. I agree – the beads completely make it. It reminds me of that gorgeous pearly edge of an abalone shell with all those gorgeous shimmery grays and creams.
Wow! That is just amazing! Love the color and dripping icicles. So very pretty.
So pretty! I can feel the softness from your photos! yay for spring…and a new lace shawl!
That is beautiful! I am working on a Sweet Dreams of my own to wear at my wedding.
Beautiful! The beads were a perfect choice, raindrops against a grey spring sky.
Wow, this is so beautiful and the beads are a perfect extra touch. I love it!
That one’s going onto my wish list. Beautiful! I love the grey and pearly beads together.
