Fiddling Around

A design idea for a summer shawl has been twirling through my thoughts for quite a few weeks.  Planning is always a good thing.  Research is near and dear to my heart.  But there comes a moment when thought becomes talk.  Or in this case thinking becomes twisting and the yarn is cast on.

There are stitches on the needles.  This is a bamboo sock yarn being worked on a #8 needle.  The beads are just being looked at.  Lately I am finding that adding beads toward the bottom edge of most any shawl gives a little sparkle and the weight helps blocking to stay put throughout the wearing.

And yes, actual notes are being written down.

Will all this fiddling around become an actual pattern?  That is to be determined.  For now, seeing a dream on the needles is enough to keep my internal motivation ramped up for the next little while.
