Here is a scarf I created specifically for my mother in law.  She loves purple (even those this is more like Lilac) but anyways I edged it with glass beads to give it a nice sparkle in the sun.  I thought this would be nice and light for the summer and yet stylish enough to be worn during the summer months.  I used a size 10 thread and a size 6 Tulip hook which is 1.4mm.  To do the beadwork along the edges I used a size 20 thread in a corresponding color and a brighter purple glass bead size approx. 10.
