Changing Tack

The waistcoat is very slow moving, so I thought perhaps it was time to take a break from it and do something else. I've been wanting to try beaded crochet ropes using different size beads. I was thinking of this picture that I first saw on Pinterest, though it turns out when I look at it again that it's not made with beads of different sizes! No matter. After a few false starts I got the hang of it, and I rather like the effect.
