Jade Pullover

I finished the front of the jade pullover.  I'm home sick from work today and my head being fuzzy I can't knit any lace, so back to the simple stuff.  Fortunately Turner Classic Movies is running Cyd Charisse movies all day, so I'm all set.

I love working with the silk.  The color is so rich and it feels so wonderful and it is going to be soft and drapey when it is done.  I'm not so crazy about the beaded yarn, however.  They string the beads on a separate thread and then spin it with the main yarn.  It is a relatively easy way to get beads on your yarn, but you don't have much control on where they end up.
