Hi folk!

I'm currently working on a couple of instances of Celestarium, and I'm getting to thinking about edgings. In particular, I'm sure someone must at some point have charted up a lace pattern for the classic sunbeams-spreading-out-from-setting-sun image-concept (you know, this sort of thing), but I've had a pretty thorough rummage through Ravelry and the closest I'm coming up with is this beaded pattern and a shawl that isn't quite right but could, in a pinch, be adapted.

I don't suppooooose any of you have any ideas? I'm reasonably comfortable adapting existing patterns but I'm a little low on brain at the moment so I'd rather not have to chart it up myself!

Thanks lots :-)

I do not have ideas, but am interested in what you come up with, because the Celestarium is my next big project.

(I actually got about half way through it, knitting time wise, but I want to redo, and and.)

Oooh.

The current version has different color by magnitude (from a bright white cold to a shimmery blue). I'm curious that the bead sizes are working well for you - I had a lot of trouble finding beads that worked okay for the yarn.

I'm thinking I want to buy the yarn while on the London Trip in November, because I want yarn for *something*, and I'm contemplating silk, but the Malabrigo has been a backup option.

(I am not worrying about not buying the yarn until November because I will be sewing the Alternity blanket together until latish October.)

All I've got is this edging that came with girasole, which is kind of a picot edging, and may not be what you want?
