Couple Of Knitting Projects

I finished this hat for my friend. It’s the same as the one I made for me except different colors.


And another shawl. The color didn’t turn out in the photo. It has some light grayish blue in it too. Really fun to knit. Finished2

Two More Sets Of Beads

Two new sets…..AncientWatercolorHollows2This set has five hollow beads, used transparent enamel on them and boiled it a bit to give them a rustic look. The first time I made these I used different glass and all the beads came out of the kiln cracked due to incompatibility between the glass and enamels. Oops.

LisaDonation This was the set that had all the cracked hollow but I made enough extra beads and added some that I made previously for this set. It’s also got a shank button.

Finally Finished This Poncho/Shawl

This took me a couple months to finish. It’s a pattern by Ilga Leja – Lady Of The Forest. The instructions were one of the best well-written ones I’ve ever used. I didn’t like the yarn I choose for this as it’s on the rough side. After blocking it softened up some but I probably will never use it again. I do like they long colorways in this yarn though.
