Beads and Knitting

A new fiber friend from NYC, Michelle, has sent me these goodies:

Beaded stitchmarkers! I love them and can't get enough of them. Pretty soon, I will teach myself how to make them. She also has a fabulous invention called fiber clips. The one she sent me says "I Love Fiber". She also carded some Romney with silk and Romney with Cashmere and sent me some samples. You can see that I already spun some of them. Thank you so much, Michelle!

More in Beads!

What can I say? Bead or beaded knitting is so addictive. I took a bead knitting class offered by our own Sacramento knitter, Kaedean, and learned so much from it.
I immediately bought some kits from The Knittingzoneand Earthfaire. The 2 beaded amulet bags in the center and on the right are Sivia Harding's designs, highly recommended for a beginner and easy to follow. Like Kaedean's class, Sivia teaches you different ways of adding beads. However, Kaedean's class offered more. I think K was able to include ALL of the techniques available.

In the next few days, I will post more pictures of my adventures in bead knitting.
