Since mostly I've been drawing beads instead of beading beads, I'll show you some finished knitting instead. Although it's hard to call this much of an accomplishment, it was a fun little knit. The pattern is called Bandana Cowl and is on the Purl Bee blog. The cowl is described as'the perfect accessory for those cool mornings when you've hit snooze a few too many times and need to turn "thrown-together-in-a-rush" into "casually glamourous"!' Casually glamourous is good in my book. I made mine out of Baby Me Boo from Misti Alpaca a thick think and really soft yarn.The pattern uses short rows and as many times as I made socks I never really mastered the whole pick up the wrap and knit it thing, but now I get it. Cat Bordhi presents one of the many you tube videos you will find on the subject if you google 'short rows in knitting' and her explanation worked for me.
Not sure you needed four photos, but it was a fun new photo booth feature. There are also many others which I just so don't get. Why would you want to look like a frog, or have your nose whirl or look like a chipmunk, it boggles the mind, mine anyways.
And onto the blog hop, in case you were wondering....
Today's contribution to the box is an assortment of Swarovski crystal (and not pink). I love the baroque pendant and this one is a 50 mm jet which I think would look stunning on a ribbon. The wild heart is one of my favorite innovations from last year and a silver shade triangle with a few crystal dorado tear drops for good measure..
