- Keep good edges. Do this by doing a chain one at the beginning of the return pass, then doing a yarn over and pull through two loops for the remainder. Also, watch your tension on the loop at the beginning of the pick up loops row.
- Let the beads dictate usage. Some beads just want to stand alone, some work better in groups.
- Different effects can be achieved by using contrasting colors or no colors at all (Julie's clear beads with a variegated ribbon yarn bears witness to that!).
- Flatter yarns seemed to work better
The pictures below show beaded works in progress. Maxine is working on a vest using beads and size 10 thread. Wendy experimented with fake pearls; she wore the resulting necklace to work today and I took her picture!
Due to yet another glitch while uploading pictures, the February gallery entry disappeared.
