Vogue Knitting Live NYC 2016 is this weekend!
I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since VKL NYC 2015! The Knitting with Beads course with Laura Nelkin has changed my life. I have been spending the year teaching myself beading, and transferring much of my spending to beading supplies.
And guess what?
I am not going to VKL NYC this year! Instead I am saving my pennies to go to a beading fair next weekend.
My goal remains the same – to combine knitting and beading in unusual ways. I’ve been spending this year learning basic beading techniques to understand how it works…so that I can rework it.
Did I mention that beading is fun? And more immediate gratification than knitting! But there are so many choices, and really, a lot of thinking and processing. And stringing is not as easy as it looks. Sure, putting beads on a string is easy, but the design, and making sure the beads fall correctly takes longer than I expected. It’s all very enjoyable.
