I have these 2 skeins of yarns in Aged Wine colorway for ages. I was planning them for something else, but halfway through, I didn't like the result. So, I frogged it and planned for something else. Laura seems a perfect pattern for this yarn and colorway. Plus I have a perfect beads for it.
I planned to make the medium size, because I originally thought that 2 skeins should be enough. However, after I did part A and did some quick calculation, I found out that 2 skeins were not enough to make the medium size. So, in the end I made the small size with additional repeats of part D (total 4 times) to maximize the yarn usage.
During the making of this shawl, I was not sure whether it would look nice, and whether I should continue making it. After blocking however, the ugly ducking became a gorgeous swan. I love it. The beads adding the glamour and sparkle and now this shawl is my favorite one to use.
