A beaded crochet attempt and Christmas yarnfall !! :))

Christmas yarnfall ? Yes , of course ! Where there is no snowfall , there is a yarnfall !! :)

I am in my piling-up frenzy mode , adding yarns and more yarns to my stock . I received my latest stock of crochet threads through an online order from Pradhan stores . Thanks to Rajeswari from diapermum who introduced me to this store and made me a yarn addict ! :)

I am working (telling lies? Yes , to myself) on my WIPs :) Crochet table cloth seems to be taking ages to complete . I have also attempted my first beaded crochet project too . But first , let me welcome my new friends .

I enjoyed all the blogs very much and they have lot of ideas to try for . I would like to make a special mention about Katia Missau - I was bowled over by her crochet jewellery; and Nima who is doing needlework since her childhood days .

I always wanted to use tiny beads in crochet . Here I am trying to use seed beads with size 20 Anchor red heart crochet cotton.

Laura Knitting Cotton
I found Laura knitting yarn too thick. My favourite so far are Anchor threads :)

There is no size mentioned for these knitting cottons neither does the store owner is sure about .
This is what I deduced after trying each of these . Correct me, if I am wrong .

Red Rose knitting cotton : size 10
Anchor knitting cotton : size 5
Laura knitting cotton : size 3

Enjoy your weekend !
Preeti :)

  8. Preeti, thank you for the mention. I have posted an easy way to thread seed beads to the crochet thread...try that if you haven't...I loved your blue thread and golden bead project...it is already looking gorgeous.

  9. Golden beads and royal blue look nice together, giving a royal look! Even I am not sure about the sizes of these threads. But I am so glad I found this online store. These threads are not easily available. :)
