Knitting With Wire!

Knitting With Wire

Have you ever knit with wire? Yes, you can actually knit with wire. The Stockinettes learned all about knitting with wire at the June Program Night.

Beth Callahan (our very own talented bead knitter) taught the Knitting With Wire class. The Guild supplied all the wire and beads and the Stockinettes supplied all the fun!

Wire Beaded Bracelet

The project for the program night was to learn to make a wire beaded bracelet.

According to Stockinette Annemieke, it was a very interesting program and she really enjoyed it! She went on to say that Beth gave a wonderful introduction and was a thorough teacher.

Annemieke says this program was a great stepping off point for making more wire jewelry. She went home and immediately got on Ravelry to find more patterns and books for making wire jewelry.

Thank you Beth for another fun filled and fascinating program night!
