She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
~ Lord Byron
Notes on Project
I’m absolutely in love with my Bewitched shawl. Hand-knit in Vivid Fiber Arts Lux XL in the Bewitched colorway, this shawl is every bit as dreamy as it’s gradient color. It’s so soft and silky that you just can’t keep your hands off of it. The Illumine shawl pattern from Nim Teasdale, modified slightly with her Renaissance Fan shawl pattern final edging, was the perfect choice for this yarn. I finished it off with #6 Toho, Magenta Lined Gray Round Japanese seed beads. I wasn’t sure about them when they first arrived. They seemed too magenta, but on the yarn, they blended perfectly. I’m so pleased with how this shawl turned out.
