Once the snow and cold sets in each year, the crafting/knitting bug starts to take over. There is something about sitting in a sunny window with your tea, a blanket, and a crafting project that can't be beat.
This weekend I picked up some supplies for necklaces. I've been seeing some simple geometric jewelry in a bunch of stores, and so I thought I'd try my luck at recreating them on a far less expensive scale:
They are made using brass and pewter mostly. I've been a fan of brass and copper lately, so I may try to purchase some more supplies for these soon.
They are all long enough that they can slip over your head, so they don't need clasps, and they don't get tangled in my hair!
I've also been chugging away on my sweater that I've been attempting to make without a pattern. Here is the progress so far:
It is made from a fingering weight super wash wool that is really soft. I wanted to use a lightweight yarn so that it would drape a lot better. I am going to try to write up a pattern for this sweater as well. :) The neckline is crocheted and then you pick up the crocheted stitches and knit the body and sleeves. The pattern is surprisingly simple, and fits really well so far!
