What are you most proud of? These were gestalt therapy, making up with a childhood experience knitting a red thumbless mitten. Yarn's been waiting for quite some time, before I got the courage. All went well, I had fun with this project and love my new red mittens, two of them and now with thumbs. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make a little lace swatch adding the beads - 2 repeats of the pattern, block, measure and calculate how many beads you need to string on your yarn for the desired circumference of your. lace cuff. The middle ones were strung on dental floss and added directly to the stitch..
