Knitting in Braille

I've been trying to come up with an interesting way to knit Charli's name into her blanket. An old episode of Knitty Gritty featured a sweater with the knitter's name written in braille with bobbles. Bobbles are a pain to knit, so why not use beads instead? This swatch is my name. Pretty cool huh?

Jennifer, that is so cool! I told you I am also a knitter, right? I am thrilled that we have some things in common. :)

I love the bead idea! I just started to learn Braille last week and used a Perkins brailler for the first time. I have to admit it's addictive once you get the hang of it. (or maybe it's just me, I'm a big happy geek 8-))
