Olympic Update ..going for the GOLD

Nupps out..Beads in...I am very happy with the result. I am using #6 blue lined topaz. The camera flash doesn't do it justice. The beads lend a lovely sparkle. When finished I will attempt a picture outside in natural light. This 100 % soybean yarn is very nice to knit with. Some of the residual dye has come off on my fingers but I will rinse it in vinegar when I am finished.
I am going to go into another ball to finish the edging...nuts I was hoping to get this out of one skein. 13 rows to go!!!!

Great job mum! It's beautiful. I can't wait to see it all done and blocked.

I'm making a wrap for Ryl for Ravelympics. I'll get a picture of it up here soon.

Gorgeous!But of course it is - combine a beautiful yarn with your talent, and this is what you get! I have seen this word everywhere with regard to lace - what the hell is a NUPP??

aw Sandy, thank you, I am happy with the results. Just wish I could have shown my Mom the way it turned out. She was facinated by the thought of Soybean

Corinne, can't wait to see yours
