I bought some seed beads and decided to go ahead and take the plunge to start knitting with beads. I had originally thought that beads and knitting were something far flung and hard to do. Boy, was I wrong! Big time. The hardest part is getting the beads onto the yarn. Yep, that is it. I used dental floss to get the beads onto the yarn.
I thought of knitting socks. No, that didn't happen. I went with a scarf or stole, I am thinking it might turn into a stole. I am working on it right now. It is looking pretty so far.
I am using one of my own hand painted yarns. This one is called Pomegranate. It is merino/nylon blend. The beads are Toho cubes, 4mm trans-lustered rose. They work really well with the yarn. At first I didn't think they would look well with this yarn. I found out that yes, they look fabulous with my yarn.
So exciting! I love when it all comes together.
I love the beads and I found them at Artbeads. I also look for beads at my local bead store. She has a pretty good selection. I want to go peruse her beads as soon as possible, again. I have one bead here that I need more of with another yarn.
I can see why so many knitters are into bead knitting, it is very addictive!
