Beaded Knitting Show and Tell!

Joanna hosted a beaded knitting class awhile back and here are some of the finished projects!  

Lori used a buttery yellow Frog Tree Pediboo for her bag.  Her bead choice perfectly compliments the design and bag color.  

 Kate chose a lovely white to go with her multi-colored beads.  I think both bags turned out beautifully and I bet they will enjoy using them for a special occasion or even everyday.  Good job, ladies!
Joanna had the class use the Exploring Spirals pattern from Ravelry.  The bag takes fingering weight yarn.  You do not have to chose a solid color as the pattern would be beautiful in a hand-dyed fingering weight such as, Madelintosh Light, Three Irish Girls Adorn Sock, or Malabrigo Sock.  It would also look amazing in Cascade Heritage Silk.  That is what Joanna chose to use for her project. 

Email us if you have been inspired by Steven or one of our staff and you want to show off your complete project.  You may see your project featured on our blog or our 
Best in Show page on!

We are crazy about beading in our knitting lately.  Lori is holding a Beaded Cuff class in August.  This is a great introduction to beading in your knitting!  
Are they accessories or jewelry?  Hard to say but either way they knit up quickly, make great gifts, and fun additions to your winter wardrobe.  Wear them for warmth or wear a sparkly pair with a plain black top and you will be dressed for a night on the town.  If you missed Susanna Hansson's beaded wrister class in April, then take this class with Lori to create the same pair of beaded cuffs!  Don't miss it again!
It is a single session class for $22 on Monday, August 6th from 10:30AM - 12:30PM.  

Lori is going to follow-up with a beaded, fingerless mitt class.  Steven, of course, wants his made with skull motifs.  It is either that or a zebra pattern.  Lori is still working on that one!  You will be required to know magic loop to attend this
 intermediate class.  
Watch for more information!
