The winner of the deluxe edition of Annie and the Swiss Cheese Scarf is..... Candi! Congratulations, Candi!
For those that didn't win, I really recommend picking up a copy, it's totally worth it and I can't emphasize enough how beautiful and high quality the book really is.
On to the WIP!
I've wanted to try beading in my knitting for a while, and when I picked up a Mudra Cuff kit on my October trip to Montreal, it was the perfect opportunity to try. The kit is great- it's a small project that even a newbie beader like me could manage, and comes with all you need, as well as weblinks to Laura's blog with great videos of how to get started.
I'm almost done, just one more strand to go. I'm loving it so far, even though I'm slow with it, I can see how beading your knitting gets addictive. I really like the clasp it comes with, too- feels really sturdy (read: baby proof). I'm excited to finish it over the holidays, hopefully I'll get it done in time for some lovely seasonal photos.
