Beading

So I just got into beading and have a supply question. I am using. 1 mm crochet hook to bead. Having trouble finding beads with large enough holes. I know the bead size I want is 4mm. But how are the holes defined? It seems hit or miss

Brethren Socks Finished

These were such fun to make. Millard did a great job with his pattern and instructions. I used Knit Picks Stroll Tweed Down Heather yarn, fingering weight, 65% Superwash Merino Wool, 25% Nylon, 10% Donnegal Tweed. I'm not someone who wants to fuss over socks after they have been made, so I chose this yarn because I can wash and tumble dry them.

Colormatic Cowl

The rep was at my LYS and she had done this scarf. I instantly fell in love
with it. While she was in the back getting something out of her car I tried
it on and took a pic. SOOOO nice on me. I even loved the colors she had
picked out so I decided to be a copy cat. I don't care I love this thing. I
did such an excellent job of my partner proceeded to steal it from me as soon

SOCKS FOR OLDER SISTER

For everyone celebrating, Happy Easter and for those who do not, Happy Day! I haven't been commenting lately, but I have really enjoyed reading and seeing what everyone has been sharing. You guys are truly an inspiration. These socks are for my older sister made from some left-over yarn from when I knitted her the Adamas Shawl.

Angora Question

My mother-in-law just got rid of the last of her knitting stash and in it, was 50 grams of white angora. I think it is sock yarn weight, but I'm not sure. I have attached two photos, one next to sock (fingering) yarn and the other with the ball in my hand. I wear a medium glove. It certainly isn't worsted weight, but I'm not sure about DK.
