In the Studio: Back to Bead Knitting

I've been doing a lot of bead crochet lately while developing some class ideas for this summer and realized that I haven't done any bead knitting for a while.

This project was hiding in the work-in-process pile:


It's a simple beaded wristband for those blue-jeans summer days. It's being worked on size 00 knitting needles. It will be good practice before returning to working with the smaller size 0000 and the tiny size 000000 needles that were probably similar to the ones used for the parasol in the previous post.

Oh that's sooo lovely! I've never tried bead knitting, but this certainly inspires me!

It's very fun. You should try it!

It's beautiful, Sharon! Wow...have you ever used size 000000 needles??

Sharon said...

Yes, Rebecca, I have used 000000 needles. It's quite fun but it take some getting used to. You use minimalist motions and tension when knitting on such a tiny scale.
