I received my package from Shipwreck Beads yesterday!

In an effort to use up yarn in my ever-increasing stash, I have been searching for projects that aid my quest. I pulled out this yarn, of which I have two skeins left,

and found this pattern: TNT Beaded Scarf.

Fell in love with it on the spot, and istantly started a search for beads, which led me to Shipwreck Beads. I picked out these beads.

I am quite pleased with how they look with the yarn:

Unfortunately, I got ready to checkout only to discover that the website requires a $25 minimum purchase. Major negative, in my opinion.

Wearily, I went back to Ravelry to search for yet another beaded scarf pattern that would require the usage of some of my stash yarn. I found this pattern: Sea Glass

and ended up finding three different colored beads to go with some fingering weight yarn I had in my stash.

Another unfortunately, this pattern isn't available yet, it is still in test mode. So, I found the Dué Amori Gloves and Scarf set instead. I liked this much better, so now I have to figure out how to incorporate three different colored beads into everything. Oh well, you win some, you lose some. At least, I am using up some of my stash yarn.
