Matching Yarns and Beads
It was time to string beads on to the pink yarn for the second wristlet. But I was going rogue... determined to string different beads with more contrast for the topside of the wristlet. I did this at knit night...with lots of other gals were present. I strung those 540 beads on the yarn... and then set it away from me. Suddenly, it was obvious that the beads were NOT a good color match. And all the gals agreed...not a match. Oh dang! All that stringing...and all for naught.
So, Wednesday afternoon, I took all the topaz beads off the pink yarn and put the multi-pink (no contrast) beads on. Then, I took the topaz beads and got them strung on the peach-colored yarn. I think it's a much better look!
OK. So, now I think I'm ready to start knitting again. The prep work is complete!
