Knitting With Beads

I’ve been asked to be a guest at one of our local knitting groups in Los Gatos, CA.  Our attention will focus on knitting with beads.  While sifting through the stacks at my local library, I  discovered a wonderful resource entitled, “Knit One Bead Too,” expertly written by Judith Durant.  The visual instructions are well-documented and the written instructions are understandable.  “The “Knitter’s Palette,” a workbook of color, explained by Kate Haxell offers an interesting section on adding color with beads, pgs. 60-61.  Last, but definitely not least, “Betsy Beads,” confessions of a left-brained knitter, Betsy Hershberg.  A book full of inspiration which pushes the limits of knitting with beads.

Here are a couple of samples I’m working on for the class on Thursday.

I enjoy the process of pushing the world of fiber to its limits with the use of knitting needles and various methods of experimentation. Along the way, the lens of my camera captures what I see.
