Has she gone a bit nuts or just avoiding work again?
yup, its the avoiding work thing.
2 posts in a week-unheard of.
Anyway, I've quite got into this knittted jewellery thing so finished another couple of necklaces and even made a pair of matching earrings for one of them.


The one on the left is gold coloured wire with lilac/purple beads and sits quite low on the neck.
The right hand side is a choker made from silver wire with some Swarovski crystals left over from something else. The beads are mostly clear and pink so instead of putting on a clasp, I crocheted thin ribbon for the cast off and left long ends to tie it at the back.
These aren't for me tho, a friend of a friend has a sister who owns a crafty shop place and is interested in selling them for me *shock*.....could this be a less boring way to make a living than book-keeping? It doesn't take much........

And just to give myself a break from stringing beads for a while, I started a sock last night which is on a KAL on the crafty threads forum. The patttern is designed by Probablyjane and really good to do, looks like 2 colours worked at the same time but nu-uh,
its all done with slipped sts. We likey.

The knitting looks lovely - and how clever that it's slipped! (Might have to take another look at that one) and that jewellery is ace - worth avoiding work for!

Clever girl, they're very pretty and would have cost a fortune to buy.
