AJS, the friend I made the cuff for (see the last post) absolutely loved it. It looked lovely all wrapped up too:
My other friend, V, turned 50 a couple of weeks ago. She doesn't like anything fussy, be it clothes or accessories, so I wanted to make her something I thought she'd actually wear, so she got a crochet and beaded necklaces, which fortunately she really liked:
You can't really see in the picture but these had green icing, with silver glitter and sprinkles. I really want to upgrade my camera, but I've got other things I need to save up for first. May go on the birthday and Christmas list.....
I've been feeling really guilty about how many WIPs I currently have. I made a list on Sunday and there are 13! Really, 13!!! That's pretty bad! Some only literally need to be sewn up or have buttons added. I packed away everything when we moved last March and I'm still unpacking my stash boxes now. I think I've got all the unfinished projects together and am determined to finish them all before I start something else. I've got some gorgeous rainbow yarn to make a jumper which I can't wait to start so that's my incentive.
First up, I'm going to work on my short sleeved cardigan as this will be perfect for the spring and summer months:
Again, the piccie isn't great, but it's a gorgeous green with flecks and the style is very me. I just need to make it up, finish the neckband and edging and add a button. I have a different project for tea and lunch breaks at work - something that's easy to pick up and put down - and that's a short sleeved jumper. I've lost quite a lot of weight since I started it, so it will either have to be worn with a belt or I may give it away *sigh*.
