I've recently gotten hooked on adding beads to lace scarves -- not just as edging detail, but sprinkled throughout the pattern. I'm on my 6th scarf. All are different patterns, but all are in the lace family. I have fallen in love w/ many of the beads at earthfaire.com. Their customer service is as good as KnitPicks' is. And, yes, we really do live among all those trees. It's a very different pace from our lives in the Bay Area. I've tried to add music to my page from my iTunes library and I can't get it to work. Is there a secret?
On my needles (gulp): 1. beaded lace scarf (daughter) 2. double knitted cap (son-in-law) 3. double stranded/colored sweatshirt (me) 4. tablerunner and placemats (family) 5. socks (husband). And to just make the mix more eclectic I'm designing a long, fringed, sleeveless vest (daughter). I have the toy kits but haven't even started on them yet.
