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 live in a world of mixed media, primarily focused on yarn and fabric. Currently, I'm exploring the world of fashion design, specifically dart manipulation along with bead embroidery. I enjoy translating my work through the use of photography.
