Knitting/Creating Spring into Existence

ChezCarla in Florida is the first to send photos in my spring group concept. She had some freshwater pearls and Tennessee River Stone beads, and decided to bead her spring into existence.

Here are the pearls:

Here is the necklace using those pearls:

Here is a necklace and earrings from those beads:

Carla, thanks for playing! You inspire me. I must confess I found that I “had to” finish my wintry super-warm alpaca/wool socks (pair #160) before I started on spring. Now I need to dig through and see what inspires me, to join my own project!

My project will definitely be from fingering-weight (sockweight) yarn in greens. I am thinking right now either Colinette Jitterbug wristwarmers, or super-fine alpaca-blend socks. Both yarns are gorgeous.

But first I must finish taxes. Then I get a reward, I get to knit spring into existence with the others who are playing this little game.

Sue sent some wonderful photos to support the spring project, and I’ll share those later in the week. Now, back to taxes.

    Oh, WOW! I don’t know that I could ever see point A to point B, stones to necklaces, like that–those are wonderful!

    Beautiful! I need to learn more about beading, I’d love to be able to make things like that someday.
