One down, two to go

If you read my previous post, you know that I'm glad to have this project knocked out. I feel a little better now.

Name: My first attempt at knitting with beads
Yarn: Plymouth Wildflower DK #17, clear glass beads
What I Learned: Adding beaded fringe and beads to knitting, lining a bag
Comments: Using beads is not as hard as I thought it would be. The technique adds a gorgeous touch to your knitting. I really don't like the Wildflower DK yarn. It is VERY splitty, even for a cotton yarn.

It looks great!! I love the color, and the beadwork combined with the lace is so pretty.

very pretty! The purple color is perfect. Tell hubby that if he doesn't take you out on a fancy date, you will spend the equivalent amount of money on yarn. And beads.
