Dragonfly wings

Few months ago I have participated to a giveaway from:
I have won
a skein of Knit by Numbers
by 
John Arbon of Fibre Harvest

This yarn is 100% merino, it is dreamy soft the twist is just perfect and the colour is yummy.

I have been looking for a while at a beautiful shawl/wrap from Boo Knits
and it is a free to download on Ravelry
It was the perfect timing I would be a little short on yarn but in my stash there was some of my handspun merino/silk darker but would work perfectly to make the border.
Lucky there was some pearly pink beads too and I was having enough to complete the project.

Here it is blocked/drying no sun... so I guess the beauty shots will have to wait.
This pattern was a charm, very well written usually I use the charts but this time I just kept going with the written instructions, it looks absolutely gorgeous and it is easy if you know how to use YO to increase and K2tog to decrease, I used a 1mm crochet to place the beads on the stitches easy as pie.
