|With their cool, hard exterior, beads aren't an obvious fit with the organic nature of soft knitted garments.|
But in Jane Davis' new book we review this week, Knitting with Beads, you'll learn just how vast the possibilities are.
If beaded knitting is new to you, pop into our archives for a quick tutorial on how to knit with beads.
Also New This Week
In Print: The Story of Selma
If your spirits need a lift, read our review of a remarkable little book that tells the story of a sheep named Selma.
In the Boutique: A Classic Turn for Cables
Introducing a new tool from The Big Yarn: elegant cable needles made of solid sterling silver.
Also, if first-week sales of our knitting-themed bookplates are any indication, you guys have one heck of a lot of books! If you're not familiar with bookplates, they are paper labels that you mark with your name and paste on the inside cover of your books. If you tend to loan out your knitting books, these are a must-have.
