Incredible Ribbon Yarn Shawl

My Crochetville Spring Swap partner requested a shawl and she likes medium blue. I found this Incredible Ribbon yarn and am using a Drops pattern. This is my VERY FIRST time adding beads to a project --- I broke 4 out of the 5 threading needles getting them onto the bulky ribbon but I did it!! I really hope she likes it. My hubby thinks it's very pretty.

Does look pretty! How did you like doing that with the ribbon yarn?? I have some ribbon stuff but not sure what to make with it, been thinking a bag of some type..lol
Good job and I'm sure your partner will love it!

that shawl is so pretty! I'm commenting late, sorry, I'm browsing from the spring felted bag exchange, I had to see your spidey-ghan. (too cool!)
As for the beading, Knitty Gritty had a segment, bead the yarn on thread and the needle, tie the thread gently to your yarn and thread that way. no more broken needles! made sense to me!
