Mystery KAL from Laura Nelkins

This is what I've been up to as far as knitting for the past week.  It's a mystery knit-along (KAL) from Nelkin Designs.  The details for the KAL can be found here . There are lots of people working on this project and a whole Ravelry group dedicated to it.  I am using some Ella Rae Lace Merino, size 7 needles, and beads that I bought online from what is now the Northampton Beadery. 

The above represents only 40 rows and 2 clues, but it took me 10 days to figure out the correct placement of beads and yarnovers.  Despite some serious frustration, I really enjoy lace and beadwork.  It's fiddly, it's slow, and you really can't watch TV at the same time, but it really is satisfying!

I'm impressed by that number of beads. I've never beaded, but I have some Zephyr and some beads, and after I finish my Spring Socks, I'm going to cast on for some felted clogs for my DH for TV watching and the Emily Dickinson Shawl for concentrated knitting. Your yarn is a lovely color for spring!
