This small asymmetrical necklet is not as simple it seems. An addictively easy lace pattern provides the basis for bias shaping, and a scalloped border adds charm. You are done in a flash. You’ll learn the crochet hook add-as-you-go bead method and how to choose the perfect bead for your project. This is a fantastic first lace project and an engaging class for all levels.

About Sivia Harding
Does bling make your heart sing? If you’ve always wanted to add some beads to your knitting, now you can learn how when Sivia Harding comes to our guild in June.
Sivia Harding is a knitwear designer known mainly for her work with beads and lace. She has worked with fiber and art since childhood, but she only learned how to knit in her mid-forties. She loves teaching because of the cross-pollination of ideas and enthusiasm that happens in a class setting. Look for her work on Ravelry and on her website http://www.siviaharding.com/.
Sivia will present the program at our Guild meeting, “Seduced by Beads”, she will inspire you to start knitting with beads so you can add bling to any knitting pattern, from simple beaded edgings to elaborate beaded knits that make a statement. Sivia will also offer three workshops.
Please sign-up for the workshops at the May meeting or send an email to Tina Rounsavell at email@example.com and make your check payable to SDNCKG. If you have any questions, please contact Tina.
