Finally getting a chance to take a decent picture of this stole and post it. The center back panel will have 2 fish, facing opposite ways, when it's done.
I also got some feedback from folks who knit here at work. The backing, it needs to be something soft, and dark, so like dark green or black velvet.
Sadly, you can bearly see the beads in these pictures. Once it's done, I'll take pictures outside.
