Knitted with Beads

Video podcasts 
have become my most recent pastime.  
It's giving me the opportunity
to watch and learn from these
knitters/crocheters/spinners/dyers 
who 
are blogging using video rather than 
the written word with photos.

Gives us the opportunity to see it ALL ! ! ! 

Love it ! ! ! 
You know what they say,
a picture is worth a thousand words .  .
so true with the case of video podcasts.

Many of these video podcasters 
also spin, using spindles and/or wheels,
there are independent dyers with online shops.
Just ask me how I know.
All are sharing and generous 
with their fleece & fiber love & knowledge.
Look Out! ! !   It just may be catchy.

While watching a new-to-me vidcast/vlog 
I saw 
showing a recent completion -  -
 Lexington Waves Knitted Beaded Necklace
you can see the free  pattern here on Ravelry

You know me, 
never a new pattern/technique/yarn Gerry won't try.

Printed out a Hobby Lobby 40% off coupon
and shopped
for beads.
I did limit my purchase to beads
just for this project!!!!

Using leftover sock yarn 
I made my first knitting-beading project.
 Lexington Waves.



Then .  .  .  .  

Using left over yarn from Multnomah Shawl

-  -  -  -  -  -

my second Lexington Waves Knitted Beaded Necklace


opps, I still have beads leftover.
Oh, oh. .  .

Speaking of Multnomah
here it is 
just prior to going for a soak and 
a session of blocking. 



Flutterby-sort-a- beauty isn't it ! ! !

  1. Enjoy your work.

    Are there podcasts that are just audio?

  2. Wow, I especially love the grey and green necklace! I've seen old-fashioned knitted coin purses using this technique also - so pretty and feminine.

    And I love the colors of your new Multnomah; nice and cozy for the cold weather that's coming!

  3. I just discovered podcasts and having been listening and watching them on my ipod. I now need to watch the one with beads because I want to do that! They are so lovely Gerry. I really want to come and hang with you for awhile just so I can see you in action! You have once again amazed me with your wonderful talent!xx

  4. I'm a huge fan of how-to videos and as our kniting community is so widely spread, they come in handy when I'm struggling with a method or technique. You do know that you are AMAZING, right? I love your beadwork (I want to try!!) and your Multnomah is sooooo pretty.

  5. Those necklaces certainly turned out nice. I'm sure you enjoyed the challenge. Love the shawl. I still don't think you sleep.

  6. Those necklaces are amazing! I need to learn how to knit in 2012. I know the videos are grrrrreat! That's pretty much how I taught myself to crochet...well, uhm, "crochet geek" taught me the basics. Yay for the internet! It's such a different world now!
