What materials did you use? Hand dyed lace weight merino, beadsoup, acrylic tubing, wooden beads.

What are you most proud of? Knitting can be quite measured and linear, particularly if one knits with beads and uses patterns. I wanted to create an organic look that still had balance.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used a 4mm acrylic tube through the beads and the knitwork, this works really well if your beads are a bit heavier, or you want to put some beaded or wrapped strips around some of the knitted components. It gives a good shape and is easy to push through.

Oh Bianca, This is wonderful! You did a superb job, but why does that not surprise me! I have been hosting a knitting workshop all week so no beadwork for me till next week. Can't wait to get back to it!

Bianca, where do you get the tubing? Thanks.

Hi there, well, we get it in craftshops here in Australia, it is available in several diameters. The other thing I have used is rubber buna cord, if you do a search for that you will find it available from lots of suppliers. Michaels may have the acrylic tubing. I used 4 mm.

And don't forget aquarium shops. polymerclayexpress.com have several diameters, they are a great supplier in the US. If you are a seed beader, the black rubber buna cord is ideal to create netted ropes. Hope this helps you.
