November Challenge - Caught in a Net

Wondering what the Etsy BeadWeavers are up to in November? Sandy (aka Forbesfarm), the winner of the October challenge, has selected a new challenge: Caught in a Net.

When asked to choose the November challenge theme, Sandy said:
When looking at the other beader's work, it appears that many of them stick to one or two stitches. I try to use a variety of techniques when I work. I was thinking about a challenge using just one stitch. It would be new to some of the group, and perhaps not their favorite one, but it would challenge them to get out of their comfort zone. Peyote and Herringbone seem to be done to death. How about a challenge for the Net stitch with no limit on color, beads used, etc.? Personally, I have used this stitch quite a bit, but always in a flat necklace. There must be more to it than that!

We'd love to have you join us for the challenge! If you're not a member of Etsy BeadWeavers, you can click the link on the blog to join. You just need to be a seller on Etsy and love to do beadweaving to be a member. You can send a convo (via Etsy) to either me (time2cre8) or Carol Dean (SandFibers) to join the Etsy BeadWeavers Street Team.

I thought I'd save everyone some searching by posting some links to sites with information about netting stitches:

In addition to those sites, there numerous books and patterns available. Check 'em out and get started on your November challenge!
