Now that you know how to add beads to your knitting projects, let me show you how to apply these same knitting techniques to create beautiful jewelry. All you need is string, beads, knitting needles, and your imagination.
Last weekend was the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, the largest event of its kind in the United States. Readers are giving the show mixed reviews, with an A+ for fibers and C- for crowds and overwhelm. Read their reports in our forums.
An Intimate Knitterly Gathering
If crowds aren't your cup of tea, consider spending a relaxed weekend with us this fall in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. If you're interested in joining us, take a moment to fill out our questionnaire and email it back to me.
Prefer international travel? Have I got the trip for you. Donna Barnako of Wooly Knits will be leading a tour of Scotland and the Shetland Isles this September.
Her itinerary includes a visit with Scottish handknitting designer Di Gilpin, a tour of Jamiesons Spinning Mill, Edinburgh Castle, and the Scottish Museum of Woollen Textiles, and lots of free time to get your bearings and explore on your own. Aaaah, what a dream!
