I've found out the hard way that an essential part of learning lace knitting is using stitch markers.
So I dug out my jewellery-making stash, and sorted my favourite semi-precious beads. Add some white tiger tail wire, some small end beads and crimp beads - yay! - quick and pretty stitch markers :D
Couldn't stop there! I spent a happy hour making few more. Now I can get to see and use my favourite beads, and the knitting gets easier :)
