Beauty and the Bead
A few weeks ago I received a care package from a shop-owner friend. Inside there were all sorts of beautiful new yarns, but what really caught my eye was a little kit for a knitted bead necklace.

Since then I've been rediscovering just how much fun it is to incorporate beads into knitted fabrics -- and that's what we explore this week.
