Two Fins

Netflix is such a wondrous thing. It has provided all the background noise for my latest project. This past week I have spent time on the Mermaid Azure and with Fin Tutuola from Law and Order: SVU. Because of the way the the chart reads and my continued miscounting of stitches, I made the executive decision to bead as I go. I don't have a hard and fast rule about beading until the end, it's just something that I do. Beading as I go on this one has kept me on track and since this one is quite bead heavy, will make the project seemingly go quicker. :)


Well, at any rate, here she is, my Mermaid Azure:
