I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Evenstar Border a WIP

What you see above is the simplest most efficient way of beading with Superfloss.  The floss has a rigid end and a spongy  core.  You have to cut it down a bit, not much.  YOu get your beads in a row and the when needed, you use this floss to work this out.  I will try to make a video during the weekend to show you how it is done.  I saw it on a  this video link HERE , but I don't like to link videos that may disappear or not lol.  So if you click the video link it should take you to you tube and there you will see the wondrous idea from  The Knit Girllls .
In the photo above you see a blue cord, that is an addi click cord, is what I used instead of a waste yarn.  When I am done with the border it will be a flash to graft this together with live stitches.
This photo above is the right side of the border.  I can not tell you how beautiful it is in real life, compared to the picture.  The silver lined glass beads look like drops of water that shine like diamonds.  Anyway my peeps, thanks for stopping by and I will have more projects as I get to finish this one.  I made 4 repetitions of the border, each repetition takes me about an hour.  There are 56 repetitions, only 52 to go. Thanks for stopping by!
