Knitted Necklace

My first jewelry and bead project. I used Lion Brand steel/wool and glass beads from the local bead store in VT. I also picked up Toho Shoji magnetic clasp and metal rings. I love this project so much I went to Habu Textiles and bought three more yarn choices and some semi-precious beads, etc (in NYC). The LYS in VT loved it so much they want me to teach a knitting w/ beads class.

I think I've come a long way in two years of picking up a pair of needles.

I had to find the most feminine shirt and shave to do my photo shoot. I crack myself up. :)

It is the SeaLace necklace.

It is the SeaLace necklace. Forgot to put think link: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sea-lace/people

I always use metal needles and when I did the turn sometimes they would slip off the stitches. Very annoying but after awhile I got the maneuver down. I wouldn't recommend black thread for the first time. Was hard to see what was going on but after awhile the pattern was very easy to put down and pick back up.

That's a beautiful necklace

That's a beautiful necklace Sean (regardless of shave :)) , it looks like Sea Lace which I've made twice now. The second time was for a friend who wanted it to pick out the colours of a flower in her garden, it is such a versatile pattern.

I think this necklace is

I think this necklace is great! And you make a good model too...! Not only am I an obsessed knitter, I do Native American inspired beadwork. What a way to marry beads and knitting.
