Guest: Karen Morris, author The Beading Answer Book
This book is available to our local customers at WEBS – America’s Bead Store. Check your local bead or book store for a copy!
The book has everything you need, or want to know about beading. Karen actually began as a knitter and in sewing. When she began working with beads, she became addicted!
It is a great book for everyone from beginner to expert.

Knitalong with Pixie:
Finishing up the Tunic
Ready for armhole shaping. If you don’t like the stair-step appearance, use the slope bind off for the armhole (can be found in the Knitter’s Companion, pg. 73 or any good knitting reference book).
End completing a WS row.
When you slip, slip, knit, remember to slip as if to knit!
Be sure to check your stitch count to make sure it’s correct throughout.
Work back as the front, replacing the cables as indicated. If you want, you can put the cables on the back.
Strap length can be adjusted by casting on more or fewer stitches.
The front may have to be blocked a bit more severely than the front because of the cabling.
When seaming, work into a “frown” on one side and “smile” on the other.
Decorate front as desired, or leave plain.
