Holy Smokes! I Did It!

 
I finished April's pattern for the Beaded Year long scarf project!!  I'm so excited--
 
Yes, this is an interesting pattern for April and I enjoyed working it up with my handspun wool/silk blend.  Then I looked at the Ravelry group and realized that THIS MONTH is MAY!
so, once again--I'm behind a month!
Here is May's pattern--there are still some days left==But, guess what==I finished before the end of MAY!! Sometimes I amaze myself!
 
 
HORSESHOE LACE PATTERN (multiple of 10 + 1): 64 beads and 47 sts total on the needle.
NOTE FOR PLACING BEADS: you will be placing beads on the ‘Slip one, K2TOG, psso’ stitches. Place the bead in the K2TOG stitch and be sure that the slipped stitch is passed over the K2TOG stitch AND the bead. This will anchor the bead in place. You will need 64 beads for this pattern section. If you have strung your beads onto your yarn before beginning, detailed instructions for how to insert the beads can be found in Post #617.
NOTE: There are two versions of the pattern. Be sure to mark the version you are working on.
