Pattern Description:

How can you incorporate sparkle and add dimension to knitting? Knitted fabric is usually flat, and the word 'bling' does not come up very often to describe it.

I have taught myself many craft techniques through the years, but knitting with beads was different. It didn't come easily. It took a long time. There were supporting techniques that had to be figured out. And there was a deadline - I had to teach a workshop in knitting with beads - and that deadline was fast approaching.
