Bead Knitted scarf

In an old Beadwork magazine is a project/pattern for a Bead Knitted scarf. You knit two pieces and join them in the middle. I knitted the two Bead Knitted ends lots shorter than the pattern called for then added the silk velvet section in between. I like the way it turned out.
I am experimenting making a pair of finderless mittens to match. Sock yarn is for more than just socks!!

A few new things

HI! Everyone,
I have been making a few simple Soutache pieces. Soutache work is new to me. I am inspired by the beautiful work of the artists of Germany and Eastern Europe. I am working on my skills and style. So, here are a few pieces I have made.

The big necklace is the most complex piece I have tried so far. I really like working with the Soutache trim. A wonderful addition to my beading repertoire.
