She's Psychic...again

;0) First and foremost, I want to thank my SP9 Pal Michelle, for being such a great secret pal.

It has been a blast and I am enjoying getting to know you immensely. Look at this wonderful stuff she sent me!!! It is like the girl is psychic! I had been looking at the chart holder from Knitpicks....

The Alpaca Cloud....

Wonderful lip balm from Bath and Body...check.
And her marvelously sinful truffle recipe. Oh, wow!!! Thanks Michelle!!!!!!!

We woke up to this

on Friday. Unfortunately, school was still in, but I only had a couple of lessons anyway, so it was an easy day. Came home to a fire, coffee and much knitting. This is all I have wanted for weeks. It isn't much to ask, is it? Here is my progress:

Birch in Kidsilk Haze pink with beads added in as I go. It's about halfway finished so far.

And this sock.

I have now fallen into the deep dark well of bead knitting. Always loved beading....and knitting. Why not combine them and make myself more miserable? heh heh I am using 0000 needles, silk and size 11 beads. Welcome to my world of insanity. I think I will be experimenting for a while, but I have supplies now for a nice sized purse. Wish me luck and much mental health.

Fritz and Mia enjoying the warmth inside.

Unbelievable! We've got practically nothing on the ground.

The purse looks interesting but it will be a cold day in h___ before I try knitting with those needles!

That purse looks amazing! I love beaded knitting (not that I've done it).

Snow! Lucky you.

The cats looks so companionable!

So how do the beads get on the yarn? Do you work them in somehow as you go, or do you have to string all of them on the yarn before you start?

It is cold enough here in Chicagoland (0 right now with windchill about -20) to truly believe that hell has frozen over, but I still won't be knitting with those tiny needles anytime soon.
