What materials did you use? Sock yarn, glass beads, wine corks

What are you most proud of? I used up some more of my wine corks. Still have a lifetime supply, though.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient. These beads take longer than you think they should.

Wonderful! Great color choices and I love the combination of the different size beads. I see that you wrote that all of the fibers are sock yarns but I know that I am curious (and think others might be too) about the specific brands, especially the one used for the solid color beads. They look especially smooth (not at all fuzzy) and even look like they might have a little sheen to them. The stitch definition with these is also great. Do tell! :-)

Actually, the solid colored beads were knit with embroidery floss, which I chose both for the sheen and for the great range of colors. I'm afraid I don't remember the brand of the variegated sock yarn. I am a prolific sock knitter, so I have a big stash of remnants. Using up some of that stash was a big reason I was attracted to knitting beads. I am also a weaver, so I am using some of my perle cotton weaving stash for some beads, although not on this bracelet.

I love this and the colors are wonderful. Thanks for sharing!

I had a feeling that those solid color balls were worked with something other than sock yarn. So many contrasts in this piece - solid and variegated fibers, beaded and plain knitted beads, soft sock yarn and shiny embroidery floss - make it interesting on many levels. Lots of thought went into this creation and it is evident in the result. Well done!
