Beaded Purse Necklace

After I finished my hooded sweater, I needed another project until I could get to the yarn store to buy yarn for the shawlette project. Several years ago, I bought a kit to make this purse and it became my new project. Until then, I'd never knitted with beads or knitted with such small neeedles, thinner than tooth picks. It was lots of fun to do this quick project. The most difficult part was stringing the beads on the pearl cotton from the nylon thread hanks. Tonight I'm going to knit a swatch to check the gauge for my shawlette. I'm really excited about this project.

  1. Wow, Gita, I cannot imagine knitting with such small needles. So you knitted with perl cotton strung with beads? This is lovely, how big is it?
