new to the wonderful world of beading and am attempting to make the Lasso Loops
bracelet on page 54 of April/May issue of Beadwork. The bracelet uses 2
hole seed beads and the tubular herringbone stitch. I'm having a really
difficult time keeping the tension tight. It seems that every time I
stitch the step up I ruin any tension that was creating in the previous round.
What am I doing wrong? I've had to re-do it several times because I can't
seem to get right.
suggestions would be greatly appreciated
Try hanging on to you working thread near your stitches. What I do is sort of wrap the thread over my index (not around, just over) then I hold the thread with my middle finger. This helps me control my tension. Not sure this will work fir you, but worth a try.
