I had been wanting to try knitting and crocheting with wire and beads to create jewelry for some time now and this morning I saw Cat of www.letsknit2gether.com demonstrate (very nicely I might add) how to knit a bracelet. You can find her video here. This was a quick 1 hr project and was a nice break from more intricate knitting. Believe it or not this bracelet is surprisingly soft and comfortable to wear.
So with out further a-do here is my first try at knitting with wire!
You can also find Cat on Ravelry as letsknit2gether so stop by and say hello and see all of her beautiful knitting projects. She is super talented and her podcast link is in my sidebar. I find her video podcast very informative and entertaining as well as inspiring!
Cat also suggested a couple of books that she has found helpful.
Twist and Loop by Annie Modesitt
Knit and Crochet with Beads by Lily Chin
Knitting with Beads by Jane Davis
Here is an episode where she walks you through another knitted bracelet using beads.
Why not give it a try?
