Beaded Lace Knitting by Anniken Allis and at first, I was a little overwhelmed. I actually sat there, flipping through the book for the first time just admiring all the gorgeous works of art these models were wearing, and I thought "there is no way I can do that! It's tiny sticks with tiny string with tiny sparkly things... nope, I'm a complete fraud." I mean, I've only just gotten back into knitting again and at that, I'm so rusty on how things are done, I'm sure I would flub it all up. I had beaten myself before I even had a chance. I put it down and went to put the kettle on. I needed a spot of tea to clear my head before I dove back into that scary place. Once my cuppa was ready, I sat back down and actually read the book. Then, my outlook changed.
