Help - Interesting Shawl with Ribbon

I've decided to make a shawl using Crystal Palace "Party" ribbon. ("Tulip Petals" - i think it'll be lovely!)

The pattern i have is simple:

size 13 needles

cast on 7 stiches
knit, inc 1 on both sides
repeat until garment is desired size

Basically, it's going to be a large triangle. :( Sounds kinda boring.

I was wondering if there was a way to kinda jazz it up? (I'm a novice and a scientist - creativity isn't my strong suit!)

Beads? (i'm game)
Elongated stitches? (sounds interesting but i didn't know if that was possible when you're increasing each row)
Fringe? (yes, was planning on that).

Any ideas??

I'm making this for my sister because she has a fancy-schmancy luncheon to go to and i think she's feeling kinda frumpy and unhappy about having to attend. I want her to be the belle of the place and have something gorgeous that no one else has!

I appreciate the help greatly!


p.s. as a book-taught :study: newbie, i LOVE this site!!
