That's beautiful!  Just curious, what kind of needles did you use?  (Bamboo, metal, casein, etc?)  I would be worried about tiny wood needles snapping.

OK, so you say that size 13 and size 11 seed beads were too small.   Would you recommend size 8s then?  Those are significantly bigger than an 11.  I'm wondering if they'd be too big?   Maybe 10s would be just big enough?

Perhaps this is one of those things that you get the cotton and get a small amount of a couple of sizes of beads and try them out before committing to entire hanks of the wrong beads. Smiley

Edited:  I just found this:  http://earthfaire.com/product_info.php?products_id=447  which seems like an excellent option to get coordinating thread and beads.

I used size 11 seed beads on a hank but couldn't string them the way it suggested (tying the thread together) because the knot was too big.  Luckily I am a beader as well and had plenty of long, skinny beading needles on hand - so I did it that way.  If you keep the beads on the hank and run the needle up them before pulling the hank thread out it goes pretty fast.

As far as needles - mine are metal - I am pretty sure I would have snapped anything made of wood. Grin

Thanks bespectacled! I too would die using those needles - and I'm not sure I've ever seen them in a shop here...

This link has been in my to-knit list for so long.  I think it's about time I dig it out!!!

Lovely, lovely, lovely.  I've been ogling this pattern for a while but am intimidated by the small needles and the beads... but now that I've seen a couple of these, I think I must knit it.  Someday soon.

Beautiful job! What a great spring time project. However,  I wish I'd been reminded of the pattern before Mother's Day...it'd have been perfect.
