WELCOME TO EPISODE 7: SKILL OR CONCENTRATION?
What We’re Learning from our Knitting:
Margaret is knitting and crocheting long strands of beads to wear as necklaces or as wrapped bracelets.
In the middle: a failed attempt at a crocheted strand: no fault of the pattern– the yarn was too fine for the size of beads. Check out Wrap Around Crochet bracelets for lots of successful projects and Yuli Nilssen for her other designs.
On the bottom: improvised icord with beads.
Yarn is Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick.
Brainy Stuff: What determines your success or ease with a project — the level of difficulty or the level or concentration?
Many knitting and crochet patterns are labeled by skill level: beginner, intermediate or advanced or easy and challenging. But what do these terms mean? If you are an expert lace knitter, does that mean you’ll find cables easy? Catherine and Margaret discuss what the differences are and how they may or may not impact your experience creating a particular project.

Beauty in the sand:
Use a Kitchen scale to determine amount of yarn you have left.
Number of yards in total skein X (number of yards left) ————————— = ——————–
Number of grams in total skein Number of grams left in skein
X equals number of yards in total skein (times) Number of grams left in skein (divided by) number of grams in total skein.
