This week I have been mostly focusing on finishing up my second pattern which I am planning to release at the end of the month. Here is a sneak peek...any guesses on what animal it is?
I also finally got around to practicing knitting with beads. I bought Laura Nelkin's class on the subject and have really enjoyed watching it. I finished the Pioneer Cuff which is the first project but I still need to block it. I'm already thinking of making more.
And of course I have already started my own bead stash. I found a bead store in a town about an hour away and got my brother to take me on Sunday. There was a Mother's Day sale going on so I got a few more than I would have otherwise. They had a nice selection of colors so I think I may be going back.
In case you missed it, I released my first pattern last week. Emilia the Elephant!

Oh I love your elephant! I like how you did her ears. Knitting with beading is fun. I like how easily it can add a little sparkle and femininity to a project.ReplyDelete
That elephant is adorable! I haven't knit with beads before, but it is something I want to try. I used to make a lot of friendship bracelets and other beaded accessories when I was in high school...those beads become addictive...much the same as my yarn is now...hmmm... :-)ReplyDelete
Love the elephant! The first picture makes me think of a spider's leg for some reason lol.ReplyDelete
Lovely bead stash you've got there. My first beaded knitting was a Fragile Heart shawl which was rather daunting! I think your cuff is a much more sensible idea :)
I think next month is the month I try knitting with beads, Yours looks great. And I already have a headstart on the bead stash :)ReplyDelete
Cute stuff! The elephant is adorable! I have yet to try knitting with beads. But it looks very pretty!ReplyDelete
