Harry Winston Has Nothing On Me Necklace

Harry Winston Has Nothing On Me Necklace

So I finally broke my habit of making toys and actually made something grown-up. I took a half-day Friday and after eating a bit too much dim sum (oy!) I found myself in Harvard Square at Beadworks. And while I did say I wasn't buying any yarn for a little while I never said anything about beads!

I remembered this pattern "Harry Winston Has Nothing On Me" from Lily Chin's Knit and Crochet with Beads . And have a whole bag of random crochet cotton I bought from the local church's thrift store near my folks in Maine for a whopping 10 cents a ball. (This was during the few weeks where I thought I could crochet. Although some people say it's easier than knitting I just can't seem to get it right.)

Anyway, turns out the beads I bought looked great with this brown crochet cotton from the thrift shop stash. After accidentally spilling the beads all over the floor (whoops!) I was on my way. I really love the way it came out and it turns out I have a purple shirt almost the exact color of the beads. Can't wait to wear it and show it off!
