I've been working on my King Cole cardigan - if I carry on like this I should have it finished in time for next winter!
|I'm making this cardy.....|
|...but in this colour yarn|
|Self-striping yarn is awesome!|
|I love these colours|
I also decided to start work on a 'Quick and Easy' project - well, that's what the October issue of 'Simply Knitting' called it. I haven't done much lace work before, so I'm finding this a bit fiddly, but I'm going to love it when it's finished:
|As you can see, I haven't got very far with mine yet!|
Last week, I went to The Beaderie (http://www.thebeaderie.co.uk/) after work to take a Leather and Bead Wrap Bracelet class. It was totally fantastic and although it was a bit tricky starting it off, once you get going, it's great fun. It took me just over 2 hours to make my first 3-wrap bracelet. I loved it so much that I made another one on Saturday. Here I am wearing both of my bracelets together (I was really pleased with how the photo came out):
|The clear, blue and black bracelet was my second attempt and the gold, blue and purple as my first attempt. Perfect for birthday and Christmas presents, me thinks!|
|They don't look very exciting until you put them on!|
They look really pretty once they're hung up.
Sadly, before I knew it, the weekend was coming to an end and I had to pack away all my bits and bobs until the next time. Wonder how long I can keep putting off housework.......
