Beads, beads, glorious beads!

I've recently fallen in love with beading. I have come to realise that I love jewellery and now I can make it. :D What does a knitter make when she learns to bead? Stitch markers of course!

I want to learn to crochet something like this beautiful beaded bracelet...... with wire!

What I've been up to lately

I've been learning how to crochet! I am working on a Pretty Petals Bag using 2x200g balls of BWN Luxury 8 ply in Lavender and Baby Pink. I am making 12 squares pink and 12 squares purple. I am then going to line it with a pink hello kitty fabric, because this bag isn't going to be girly enough already! LOL!

I've been test knitting for Tikki! I knitted up this lovely scarfette using 2.2 50g balls of Cleckheaton Kaliedoscope on 5.5mm needles.

I've also knitted up an Aestlight shawl with 200g of BWM Luxury 8 ply in Baby Blossom and Black yarn to contrast. I learned two new skills, double crochet and a knitted picot edging.
