To Begin…

Snowflake beaded cuffsI thought I’d start by posting a photo or two of recent projects. I’ve been fascinated by knitting with beads for quite awhile. I took a class at Stitches Midwest ’06 with Susanna Hansson on how to make some beautiful beaded wrist cuffs. See her site — One of Susanna’s — there’s a link in the Blogroll section. The snowflake pattern is a cross-stitch pattern I used. The little surrounding bead pattern is something I just came up with. It’s a lot of fun — you have to string the beads on your yarn before you begin. If you’re only using one color it’s not a problem, but if you use more than one color, it’s a real mind bender. I just tried using more than one color, and when I finish those cuffs, I’ll post them. You can also use the illusion of more than one color by using beads that are irridescent. I have some cuffs that do that, I’ll post those another time (the photos are on another computer at another location). Let me know what you think….
