This weather is the perfect time to wear two of my Christmas break knits - a glitzy and a loopy scarf. I got the yarn as a pressie and it was good fun seeing how they developed on the needles; very simple to do but very effective end result:
I also decided to crack on with a friend's birthday present. Her birthday is at the end of this month and the time is just creeping up on me. She really wants a black cuff bracelet and I must confess this is the first time I've made one. I made the 'frame' out of 20-gauge wire:
I'm a bit worried that the knit section is too long for the frame. Wire always ends up so much longer than you think it will when you knit with it. I'm hoping I can wrap it enough to look okay - we'll see.
I'm hoping to get it finished this weekend but attaching it is the fiddly bit so that may take some time and if it is too long then I may have to start afresh!
I also made another pair of stud earrings (sorry the photo quality isn't very good)
Hope you're all keeping safe and warm in this cold weather.
