A small snack

I have been traveling and so don't have a real post this week. I thought I would dangle some eye candy in front of you and also provide a link to a useful beading tutorial.

First the eye candy:
That is my new Micro XL Trindle with a lavender arm sets and some lovely mystery fiber I got as a gift. It is a silk and something or a tencel and something blend.

Next the beading tutorial. Fleegle does lovely spinning and lace work. She posted an in-depth tutorial on beading-as-you-go. This is where you add beads to the stitch without pre-stringing them. This technique is best used in lace knitting where you want the beads visible from both sides of the work and there is no issue with the beads chafing against skin.
