FO Friday

I have a couple FOs to show you today.  Firstly, I finished my Celestarium!!

Pattern: Celestarium by Audry Nicklin
Yarn: Dream in Color Everlasting Sock in color ‘Nebula’
Needles: size US 5
Started: February 15, 2013
Finished: March 28, 2013

Modifications: I made many, including using different beads for different stars, adding in more stars, and doing a different edging.  (I have detailed notes on my project page at Ravelry – including a chart of the edging I used.)

I did larger, size 4 beads (silver lined clear) for the higher magnitude stars, and used red/orange silver lined beads for the red supergiants as well.  The ‘extra’ stars that I added in were represented by pale blue silver lined beads (and no paired yarnover for those stars.)  I used all three beads in my edging, plus some dark blue prior to starting the edging, to set the edging off from the rest of the shawl.

I LOVE it!!  It is very heavy and warm – and blocked out to about 58 inches across.  It’s HUGE!

My second FO to show you guys is even bigger.
