Yep, it's one of those 'I made a thing!' kinda posts. But this is actually really exciting. You know that secret project I alluded to last week? Well, it's this!

Have you seen the latest issue of Simply Crochet? I designed a trio of pretty beaded wedding accessories for issue 44 and it hits the shops today!
I used Debbie Abrahams beads (SO good) and scrummy BC Garn Silkbloom Fino yarn for these projects. It's a lovely silk merino blend that feels luxurious. There's a beaded bracelet, garter and a flowery hair comb. Now I'm just wishing I'd had the foresight and skills back in 2013 to hook these for our big day! And now I know how easy it is to stitch with beads, well, let's just say there'll be more where that came from!
Have you ever used beads in your knitting crochet?
First off, ho'omaka'i on this wonderful publication. I haven't used beads in anything. One of these days I will.ReplyDelete
Hello! Thank you! Definitely my proudest 'in print' moment so far :)Delete
Those are my favourite beads for knitting! I love them and there is quite a range of colours, too. Hm, I think I need to come up with a new beaded shawl soon.ReplyDelete
Congrats on your designs!
Thanks Nadia, I'm all about the beads now my eyes have been opened! Hee hee!Delete

Congratulations! Never tried knitting or crochet with beads - one day I'll have to give it a go! XReplyDelete
Hi Gill, I'd definitely recommend these beads if you do go for it! :)Delete
It's full of feminine gentleness! I think beads are perfect addition for such thing.ReplyDelete
Thanks Maya! Still love these projects. Just finished making another beaded garter! :)Delete
