Oh boy, this will be a dangerous tangent of knitting....
I spent about $40 and $20 at Joann's and Hobby Lobby today on beading stuff for making my own decorative stitch markers. At Joann's they had 40% off their knitting accessories, so I did get some bamboo circulars, and a copy of Vogue Knitting with my 50% off coupon. They had 40% off a lot of their beading stuff too, so I bought a lot there, including a set of 5 jeweler's pliers for $6.99

They also had 50% off a lot of their beading stuff at Hobby Lobby too, so I picked up more there, plus beads in different colors they were out of at Joann's. I really love blue and silver together, and they didn't seem to have much in the blue I wanted at Joanns, but I did get a some purple stuff, and I think 3 packages of 6 toggles for only $1.19 each! I got the blue stuff at Hobby Lobby.

And today's a rainy, cold day, perfect for doing some knitting and beading!

I know exactly what you mean!! I got sucked into the beading thing, too! It just isn't the same to knit without a little bling in your stitch markers. 8-)

and then beads start creeping from your stitch markers into your knitting, and you know that's REALLY dangerous. Then you have to do a beaded scarf, or a beaded bag, for goodness sake. Stop it, stop it now, before it's too late !

Oh Dear-- :rollseyes: I'm afraid I don't have a JoAnn's or Michael's near--but WalMart carries some of the basic beading things. Well--I spent about 10 bucks there the other day, but I can make 25 or 30 markers with just what I got!! I know this picture isn't very clear--but I'm afraid I've got the fever--but ONLY for the stitchmarkers, ya'll!!! I Am NOT going to g
et beading on th e brain full time!! Can't afford to do both!

BUT--it was fun! :D :D

Next new forum for KH is going to be one with help NOT going on to another thing. I just ordered sock yarn-and now some needles for that and now this beading thingy. Hmmmmmmmmm, wouldn't some beads on the top edge of the granddaughters socks be cute?

There's days where I simply can not go anywhere NEAR the craft department at work!!! Would you call it bead-dicted if I have a listing of the UPCs of the beads I have already bought at work so that I don't buy them again?
May all your projects be frog-less, and all your patterns error-free!

Oh, it sounds like you're going to have so much fun. I wish we had a Hobby Lobby or a Joanns, or a Micheals in our little town...but then again, maybe it's a blessing that we don't. :XX:
