This is the necklace I made for Sparkleknit’s birthday in June. I couldn’t resist the green and pink beads as they are her favourite colours!
This is the necklace I made using the beads I showed you last week. It was made to go with my blue shoes of happiness and it does match really well. The silver flower bead in the centre is perfect as a weight so that I don’t have the “bead problem” (ladies with a larger bust will know what I mean!!).
And these are the On Hold socks from Wendy Johnson’s Socks from the Toe Up book. I used the rest of the second skein of Wild Cherry – Cherry Tree Hill Supersock yarn that I made my Wild Cherry Demeter from. I did a Judy’s magic cast on, a slip stitch gusset heel, a twisted rib and finished off with a Russian bind off which is lovely and elastic. They fit me perfectly!!
Going to Handm@de the other week has inspired me to create so I’m attempting to produce something I can sell. Work is completely awful at the moment so I need something else to keep me sane!! I’ve done some sketches and made a prototype which needs some tweaking so it may be quite a while before you see it.
Having completed my On Hold socks last night I think I need to do some finishing before I cast on anything else. I have got the Lacy Tea Top and Honeycomb Tank Top both stuck at the armhole point so I think I’ll work on one of those. I also need to block my Aeolian shawl as I finished it in June!!
