So so soooo pretty!!!! I'm going to add this as one of my 10 shawls of 2010 for sure!!!!

PS - just read your blog post and I've also been rhyming nupps with cups!!! I've found that I don't particularly care for the look of them and I'm actually going to replace them with a larger bead in the shawl I'm working on... obviously that wouldn't work for every pattern though. If you think you can work them I'm POSITIVE you can do it, I honestly don't think they're too much of a pain if you're determined.

One tip I did get was to use a safety pin to hold all the stitches together so you know exactly what to purl together on the WS :o)
