Beaded Knitting


I love to bead and I am really enjoying knitting (total beginner here!), so combining the two together...sounds wonderful!!

If you read any of my previous posts, you will know that I do NOT need a new project. I have several in the working stages right now. THIS was my daughter's idea. She saw this scarf in the Bead Store (The Hole Affair), and she fell in love with it. So, we decided to take the class together.

This is our teacher, Linda, wearing the BEAUTIFUL finished scarf. I just adore it and can hardly wait to have one of my own!

This is my daughter and her beginning scarf. She is such an amazing person. She came to the class without even knowing how to knit and she was keeping up with everyone else. She must have crafting in her genes!! Her scarf is green, her favorite color.

This is my knitting buddy, Nanette. This is our second class together. Nanette is really good at knitting. She keeps saying that she is still learning, but I think she is already a PRO! Nanette chose a different pattern than the rest of us. I would like to try this pattern also (if I ever complete my first scarf that is!).

These beads that Nanette chose are perfect for this color, just the right amount of "sparkle".

This is Judy's scarf. She was sitting across from me and I just could not take my eyes off this red. The beads are much sparkly-er (did I just make up a word?) than the photo shows. I MUST have a red one! I didn't want to post a pic of Judy without her permission, but I'm sure she won't mind showing off her work:

This is mine. I was trying to think of a color that I needed in my wardrobe and I decided on royal blue. I just LOVE this color! This is where I am with my scarf....I have already taken apart my scarf 3 or 4 times. I am not going to start over any more!! It will just have to be whatever it becomes. So, if you see me wearing this scarf, please do not come too close and begin to analyze it for imperfections....because I already put 2 beads where I was supposed to put 1. Darn!



  1. Oooohhhh...love the royal blue!
    Very cool how the beads are mixed right in there.

    I would love to learn how to knit, but I must resist the temptation to take up a new hobby. I can't finish the sewing projects I've started. LOL

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog, it's geat to meet you! These scarves look beautiful! I don't think I have ever seen anything like them, do you have to string the beads onthe yarn somehow?

  3. Thanks for stopping by, tell Nanette hello. She likes to say she is just learning about a lot of things. But she is a pro at most. Love your knitting. I still need to finish my socks.

  4. Oh, thank you for stopping by today. I am thrilled about your post. My sister, Susan has this amazing gift of creating jewelry and knitting. She loves making Neck Warmers and she has a little shop on Etsy. I must tell her about your post. What a beautiful thing to combine the two elements of design. So nice to meet you.


  5. Oh my gosh! That just looks way too complicated for me! Your scarf will be beautiful and you'll be the only one to notice if it isn't perfect!
