New Beaded Vest

There is something soothing about adding beads to knitting. I love the body it gives to the side and front bands. It makes the vest hang so nicely. This seems to be my obsession for the season. This piece works as grey but has plenty of subtle color. This combination of Rayon Metallic and Sock Plus is a winner. The rayon adds sparkle and lustre and the merino adds softness and decreases the overall weight of the piece.

Meadow Vest

The beads on this vest go all the way
down the sides, around the neck band, and down the back. It is subtle and fun. I chose the soft color for the beads so they wouldn't upstage the colors of the yarn. The kit will be available on our website this week.

Shell Jacket

I had so much fun combining the beading with the knitting. The beads don't show up well in the photos but they run around the sleeve cuffs, the neck band and down the back.
It took some time but was well worth the trouble and gives a bit of weight to the jacket. Available as a kit.
