Green Beaded Bag

January 27, 2009


A Turtleknits Classic – I started this in August, thanks to Tracy who took me to the bead store and helped me pick out the perfect beads.

Typically for me, I got it 90% done then got distracted by socks, blanket knitting, and Christmas present making.

It was inspired by a Librivox project to have a cadre of knitters record all the chapters in a book called “Exercises in Knitting” and then knit swatches to go with each item in the original book. (I can’t link to the audiobook because it isn’t complete yet.) Each knitter then rewrote the pattern using modern knitting terms and included it in Knitwiki.

Some more pictures. I found it hard to capture this bit of knitting photographically. The beads are very sparkly, and that doesn’t come through in the photos.
