The whole time I was knitting the Moulin Huet pattern, Watership Down was whispering in my ear. Several of the folks in the knit along had done Watership Down in lighter colors than I had and used a gradiance set that had more subtle color changes and those shawls are really lovely. I checked the yarn amount on my project page for Watership Down and compared it to what I had in the Moulin Huet set and it looked good yardage wise, so I pulled out my Watership Down pattern and cast on. And then I got to that first row with beads. And I didn't have any that I thought would go. I have some size 8 beads that matched the color of the first skein perfectly that I thought would look great against the skeins with the green, but I didn't have any size 6 beads that would work. I went on line and found something that I thought would work and ordered it, but I wanted to knit now, not wait for beads to arrive, so I grabbed the beads that I had used on my first Watership Down, and they worked! It has a sort of pumpkin and plum thing going on that I really like. In keeping with that theme I will probably find some size 8 purple beads in my stash for the beading in the borders.
