Bead Knitting
Does anyone have this book? It's all in Japanese- the author is Kotomi Hayashi. It sounds really interesting, and I've seen some Knitting blogs that say it's a good book. They say they don't need to be able to read it because the charts are good, but I just don't know. I'm nervous!

I don't have the book, but knitting with beads is *super easy* If you can somehow get a hold of the book to browse through before you buy it look at the pictures and see if you understand. There are other books about knitting with beads, so maybe look through those to get the basic idea, and then use this one for the patterns.

I did notice it's not on amazon, Where did you find it?

I actually found the book on this site (how cute ar those wrist cuffs????)

And, someone else talks about it on this site; there are couple entries in her blog about the book, and the people that comment love that book.

I looked on Amazon also...but I did see that you could buy the book on Lacis for $30. I think I might just have to do that!

I am JUST beginning to knit normal...and now I want to start bead knitting also??? I am CRAAAAAAZZZZZYYYY!!!!!!! :!:

me too! I have stuff for so many different crafty things; I was so glad to pick up knitting because it's portable! I was on spring break last week and all I did all week was knit, bead, sew, make candles, scrapbook, make wreaths, yadda yadda it's no wonder my house is a wreck!

I found directions on reading Japanese knitting charts here. I've never tried to read a knitting chart before so I don't know if they are any different than normal (except for that really cool Japanese writing, of course!
