Reasons for Pulse Warmers

Last week in A Peek Behind the Scenes, I wrote about how the beads do not show on the wrong side of Beaded Garter Stitch. This is an advantage for articles to be used for warmth, since the beads (which can get like ice in the cold) don’t touch your skin.

In the above photo, pretend you are knitting. The side currently facing you in the photo is the wrong side. Trust me that there are actually beads on the other side. But you can’t see them. Only to the left of the photo where I have flipped the knitting over a bit, can you see that there really are beads on the other side (which of course is what we use as the right side of the fabric).

Pulse Warmers are one of my favorite items  to make and wear using Beaded Garter Stitch. Rather than always listening to me about why, let Ellen Sandin of Earth Faire share her heart-warming (pulse-warming) story.

If you have been dithering about making Beading Hearts Friendship Bracelet, this might give you the incentive to make not only one, but to make a pair!

Do you have a story? We’d love to hear.
