This month on the Pretty Palettes challenge, Erin has challenged us with intricate Nordic knitting designs. These wonderful patterns can be found in gloves, socks, sweaters and hats. Here's one of her examples:

Here are the beads I chose:
I didn't use the AB crackle beads, and I added some jet donut beads from Bliss Beads. I couldn't find the suggested red beads but I found some in the same color that were faceted. I also couldn't find the silver filigree beads but I found something similar. Here are the earrings:
And, here is my necklace with the earrings:
Head to the Halcraft blog for the designs inspired by these patterns and colors.
As usual, Erin, the inspiration was great - wonderful colors and patterns and an educational and informative experience (which I love!). Thanks for the challenge!
Happy Creating and a very Happy and Heatlthy New Year to all!
