This usually happens to me on Fridays. On Fridays I have coffee with my friend Anna (the knitting and tie-dye goddess), then we wander to our favorite craft shop and have a look around for things we may or may not “need”. Last Friday I “needed” this book, and I “needed” some size 11 Miyuki beads.
I’ve not done Peyote stitch in a long time, and I realized that I’ve never learned to read a pattern for it. This made my brain hurt. It took several false starts to get going and many beads to get a rhythm going with following a simple two-color pattern. Luckily, these beads are so tiny that it is hard to see the mistakes. It reminded me why I prefer freeform Peyote stitch projects.
