Chief


Poor guy, he didn't want to hold the giraffe, Chickee gave it to him after he fell asleep.

I am woefully unprepared for today's post. I have a HUGE (for me) deadline on Friday, so I am working feverishly to wrap up the final details.

Hmmm, what can I say about crochet? Well, after the beaded project that I am currently working on, I may never bead anything ever again. Yep. After pre-stringing ALL the beads on the skein of yarn, I get through 3 rows of the project and hit a flaw in the yarn. So I had do dump off all the beads, cut out the flaw in the yarn, but this time I got smart and only re-strung about 3 rows worth of beads. I'd rather have more ends to weave in than push those beads! I'm probably not making sense, it's ok, I'll explain another time.

Adorable. The giraffe, that is. :D

Have you tried "hoisting on" beads? I can often do it this way, no pre-stringing. Lily Chin writes about it in her book Knit&Crochet with Beads. Whether or not this techique will work for your design depends on the crochet stitches used and where you want your beads to sit.
