Hi ya'll. I bought some really pretty Cotton Fleece in Terracotta and made it through the picot cast-on. It' not as hard as it looks. But some advise for those of you who have never done a beading project before, like me....thread your beads before you cast on! I didn't and now I'm trying to figure out what to do next. I guess I will just cut the yarn after row 2, string the beads and then rejoin the yarn...just another end to sew in at the finish. But I am still having fun and that's all that matters.
