I completed & blocked my swatch for the Mystic Waters KAL. I used Baruffa Cashwool, #3 Addi Turbo Lace Needles and #8 Mill Hill Beads.
I'm not happy with where I placed my beads. I will have to pay closer attention when the charts start coming (in 6 days). They are kind of hard to see, but since I'm using them as accents, I think they will be okay. They do show more in person.
This yarn is super soft. I'm glad I spent the money on the lace needles because it does "grab" the yarn a bit. I think I would go nuts with any other type of needles.
