I’m so glad you’re here! Pull up a chair and read on to find out how you can play along with beaders from all over the country who love a bit of a challenge. Whether you have a blog, post on Facebook, Instagram, or Pinterest, or just like to bead, the Pretty Palettes blog hop is a great way to lean in to fall and get your crafty going!
Our September 2017 Pretty Palette is based on another love of mine: knitting. I started knitting back when I was pregnant with my daughter, almost 16 years ago! She was just barely over 2 weeks overdue, and I needed a portable craft to work on while I waited, so my mother-in-law taught me to knit during one of her visits. Since then, I’ve knit quite a few baby sweaters, hats, scarves, and a few sweaters, but recently I’ve fallen in love with Andrea Mowry’s knitting patterns that are based on a “fade” or a range of gradients. While I was trying to “find my fade” for the What the Fade Mystery Knit-a-long, this batch of yarns came together for me, and I thought to myself, “This fade would be so pretty in beads!”
Here’s our Pretty Palette to go along with the yarn:
This collage shows some of the Bead Gallery® beads and pendants that I considered for the September challenge. It was too pretty not to share!
I narrowed down the field a bit, but feel free to use any of these beauties to go along with your September “fade”:
Here are the rules for all of you Pretty Palette people!
Thank you for stopping by! I can’t wait to see what you make. Hopping from one blog to the other at the end of the month is one of my favorite things. I hope you find this post inspiring and that it stretches you to break out of your typical palette choices. Until next week, happy beading!
I am still trying to find my fade! I have been waiting for today’s reveal since I discovered the August Pretty Palette on Instagram last week! So excited to create something pretty with these beads!
