I plan on taking & posting my first photo after I complete chart 2. Right now there are too few stitches for me to graft the first row together, and it looks like a drunken trapezoid. Beads are scheduled for delivery 1/4. Until then I'm in Presto Chango knitting mode.

Are you sure I'm not the mule in question? I'm not.

But she is!

Pictures will come after 4 January when the beads are scheduled to arrive and I can finish chart 2 - promise!

I don't think the term mule applies here. Has the shawl been self-medicating?

How many stitches are you grafting? I think I'll stick with stockinette sox.

No self medicating yet.

I'm only grafting 12 stitches, that's not too bad. Yet.

Grafting 12 sts is survivable. I was afraid it would be more like 120. Does your daughter have a clue as to the level of excellence you're rising in order to create The Beauty?

All right, curiosity has gotten the better of me. Which parts are you grafting?

You are using lifelines, yes? If you drop a stitch when grafting you'll be glad you did.

Probably not. But in her mind I'm Super Woman. Little does she know the truth of THAT matter...

The 24 stitches of the cast on row is bent in half to form a semicircle, and it turns out to be 12 sts grafted together.

Heck yes! I'm about to insert my first lifeline before the beading starts. Thank heaven for colored crochet thread!

How often do you insert the life line?

The way I feel with this one, probably every row! This one is patterned and beaded on every row.

Most of the time I put one every 5th purl row. Maybe I'll do this, it all depends on how confident I'm feeling. As you can tell, I'm not feeling very confident today.
