Knot News - New Pattern on the Way


I know, I know, I have not written much for awhile. I have been busy with gardening chores. I have been trying to learn to garden (since last year) and since we get an early start on Spring down here in Texas....I have been starting seedlings, digging, and planting. I have even gotten to harvest some lettuce, parsley, and beets already.

Okay, on with the news.

In light of these touch economic times, I have lowered the prices of almost all my patterns! I am calling it my "After Taxes Sale". Eventually, I am going to re-organize my Etsy Shop...when I can find the time...because right now I am in the middle of writing another pattern - "Arrow Bracelet" (see photo above for preview).

Watch for my upcoming Book Review of Annika deGroot's new book "Micro Macrame - 30 Beaded Designs Using Crystals and Cords". Check out her blog here.

Fire Mountain Gems has in some lovely acrylic beads in flat rounds, flat ovals, and some other flat shapes in sizes that are great for the "Spirals KeyChain"! Yay! I had begun to despair of finding any acrylic beads in flat shapes in large enough sizes for the KeyChain pattern. This means we can go back to using the original pattern with the alternating half-hitch chain along the sides of the focal bead. They are really quite beautiful. See a couple of examples below: You can find them and others here at Fire Mountain Gems.

I really like this group of acrylic beads -- the colors are deep and intense, I just want to play with them. I feel like Scrooge McDuck in his vault :)

Yes, I love it when that happens!

And, errr, ummmm, I am a bead fondler, too...I like your image of Scrooge McDuck in his vault - just picture us bead freaks in our vaults with beads, beads, and more beads...
