lariat using take beads

Like I said in the previous post, take(ta-kay) beads resembles bamboo, so this is what they call these long, twisted beads in Japan.

The start of the lariat is made using the ladder stitch and then the bulk of the lariat is made using the herringbone stitch.

The fringe is put on after you make the lariat itself.

odds & ends

African helix stitch necklace. The pendant slides off and can be used separately.

Working on a lariat with take (ta-kay) beads. I think they call it take beads because it looks like bamboo.

I made two totes to give away for Christmas. This is the only style I can sew....straight.

working on...

I'm working on an African helix stitched necklace. Should be finished soon.

Here's another scarf I crocheted, this yarn was a bit more difficult to use but I think it looks like a fun scarf.
