The beads are on! There are 150 threaded onto the yarn, so now I can get started. Progress is slow as I am making a case for my DPNs - really need to get my sewing machine out the way as it is a constant distraction from my knitting.
The yarn is pictured on my new table cloth and place mat set, Moiramoira by Ron Arad for Alessi. I have never had a table cloth before, I bought it a few weeks ago discounted during a closing down sale at Purves and Purves. I am really pleased with it, the coasters are cool!
