Brilliant Knit Beads by Betsy HershbergBy Lucy Neatby
Brilliant Knit Beads is an intelligently structured class, excellently taught.
Betsy is a pro! Starting with guidance on choosing yarn and beads, she then moves through several beading methods, followed by how to knit and assemble knit bead casings. She offers lots of sound advice and tips for designing your own unique knit beads.
Whilst this genre of small-scale detailed knitting is not for everyone, those knitters looking for small exquisite projects for personal use or gifts will find here a frugal use for their beautiful yarns - the yarn for one pair of socks would yield a great many beads. Or, you might use your leftovers to make earrings to match your new socks, or to create a gorgeous gem for a jacket (or backpack) zipper!
