Week 5 - Crochet

When it rains it pours.  I was a beading machine last night.  I even starting a knit piece.  I've made a few attempts at knitting wire.  It's really awkward and the results have been less than pleasing.  Switching gears, I thought I'd trying crocheting wire instead.  I bought this amazing book to use as inspiration for the Bead Soup Blog Party Easy Beading Vol. 8.

I pretty much followed the instructions for One Stitch Lots of Style.  Since this is a new technique for me, I wasn't ready to get all creative and put a twist on it.  It was pretty easy and way more rewarding that knitting (for now).  Give it a try.  Expect to see some more wire crochet pieces popping up here in the near future.


  1. I love it! I keep seeing crochet jewelry and it looks so cool but I have no knowledge of crochet so hesitant to start. I do bead weaving and that keeps me happy for now. But I still love the open look of what you did - good job!

  2. I got some instructions for crocheting with wire. I've started one piece, but haven't had time to finish it yet. I need to get on it. Can't wait till tomorrow. LOL
