Beaded Knitting??? Talk about beautiful!

Knitting with beads? Or knitted items with beading embellishment. Either way, it's all gorgeous!

This weeks theme- Knitting with Beads, led me to find some beautiful beaded wedding items from our great team members participating the I DO 2008 Wedding Challenge.

First is this gorgeous blue beaded garter from Knotty Stuff.

Hooked out of soft mohair & sparkly novelty yarn and trimmed in a sky blue cotton blend. It features a corded elastic woven into the top of the garter so it stays in place! Glass beads are crocheted into the flower centers. It's very dainty and Knotty Stuff accepts custom orders for other colors.

Continuing with wedding garters, here is a knitted garter with festive violet butterflies featuring freshwater pearls by Bubolina. Hand knit in cotton, Bubolina also offers this garter with blue butterflies, as the wedding 'something blue' item.

Perfect for a night out on the town, or I think even as a bag for the wedding night or honeymoon, this little bag by Hand Mades by Lori, is handknitted 100% cotton bag/purse is 9 cm or 3-1/2 inches square in stocking stitch and finished with lace and pearl beads. It has a little picot edging with a loop over a pearl bead to close.

Every bride needs to carry her essentials...

While these fun foot thongs are silver, they look perfect for a beach wedding! They are perfect for going barefoot while it looks like you're wearing flip flops.

Crocheted in metallic silver yarn by A Needle in the Haystack, they feature tourquoise beads around the ankle.

Let's see what the week holds for knitting with beads. Stay tuned for more fabulous features!
