I finished up Clue 3 this morning. It was a quick and easy knit, not much actual lace work, not many beads, dead simple lace pattern. I really like this yarn. I'm going to have to make something with the leftovers, maybe some fingerless mittens, which I think would be very elegant and warm, or a cowl. I have recently become a convert to the cowl. They are great when you don't want to wear a scarf but you still need some extra warmth around your neck. The beads show up well in this photo. They are white - Beadcats stock number 2-06-012-36 white opal matte irid.
