Kalapana Shawl

Named after this merino tencel sock yarn I purchased from Etsy's Stringtheoryfiberart, this colorway is unique and truly represents the silvery charcoal of molten lava. Kalapana is a beach in Hawaii where the sand is black and occasionally the area gets changed by an active volcano. I crocheted in pearl beads making the shawl appear to be a net with pearls trapped in it. This shawl was difficult to photograph and the closeups turned out fuzzy. I'll probably try again tomorrow. I plan on listing this in my shop in July. I could see this shawl partner with a black evening dress on a cruise somewhere...
