Knitting with Beads Anyone??

I want to try Knitting with beads! I love love love the little amulet bags. The are so pretty and delicate. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any size 0000 needles in any of the craft stores or LYS's in my area. Then I found out that my friend Rhonda makes up these adorable bag kits with a booklet that explains everything you need to know! She has to be one of the craftiest people I know. Here are some pictures of her kits. You can click on each image for a larger view.


Aren't they great! The needles are so pretty. She puts the pretty beads (that have a fancy sounding name I can't for the life of me remember) on the end herself. My pair have butterflies on them, too cute! She makes some other cool gadgets that I plain to make a part of my stash really soon. I'll show them to you later. For more information you can email Rhonda by Clicking Here.

I also hunted down some information on Crocheting with beads. I knew that there would be people reading this that might not knit, and I wanted to provide information for them too. has animated lessons for righties and lefties.

I'm still waiting for my Adrienne Vittadini Spring 2004 pattern book to get here. I ordered it weeks ago and was told it was on back order. Aaaaaaaaaaaargh! I'm so impatient. I know I won't get to knit anything from it for a while, but I want it! I also want the Fall 2004 book. Bonnie from Chicknits scooped one up at her LYS. I wonder if mine has it?
