Here she is, as promised. The light wasn't great today, so you can't really appreciate the beads. I'll take better pictures when the light and location are just right. In the mean time, these pictures show the basics.
The shape is a square with rounded corners. As a shawl, it is best worn with one corner folded over to make a collar. The beads give her a decent amount of weight and therefore drape.
I am leaving you with one more page of notes, where I review the materials I actually used and my blocking instructions. I can imagine this as a wedding veil, in cobweb silk and beads only in the border. I can imagine this as a christening shawl, in fingering weight cashmere without the beads. I can imagine this as a bedspread, in sport weight cotton without the beads.
My final comments are to bring us back to the original idea of starting with a simple stitch pattern and making a design. If you recall, the stitch pattern The Veil of Isis is based on is just a few rows and very straightforward. With some basic manipulation, we got that simple pattern to grow in a very organic way. I hope you enjoyed the process as much as I have.
I haven't decided what new project we will work on, but there will be another process project next month. I will post about what is on my needles and in my kitchen in a few days. In the mean time knit on!
