I told you a couple weeks ago about a new craft venture, and it has now come to fruition! You see, I have a friend who has some stunning photo jewelry that uses pictures of her kids, and she wears it all the time, and I covet it. It is, however, on the pricey side of things for my Pretty Knitty budget. . .sooooo, I decided to see what I could do with some glass, some resin, some jewelry findings, and my own photos! This is what I came up with!:
A bracelet for College Girl, featuring her and the Boyfriend! She let me take some photos from her Facebook page, and I made some chain maille connectors for three charms, and I am rather proud of myself! Bonus!, she likes it, and I have even seen her wear it twice! I also did a few other picture charms, and I plan to make something(s) for someone(s) with them, maybe for Christmas?. . .more on that later.
Seven new counters for the Pretty Knitty Shop! At this point, only two are listed, but the rest will make their way over there in the next week or two. . .I am totally jazzed about them! Aaaaaand, I have also put the word out that I can even make custom counters with the knitter's personal photos for an additional $2! Yay!
In Knitting Knews, I am still working on a sweater, a shawl and a pair of socks. . .a pretty knormal knit load for Pretty Knitty! The sweater is a new project, the Harumi Cardigan from the Smart Knitter, and I have only just begun the project. The socks are a Snowflake Lace pattern that I have wanted to knit for a looooooong time, and they are the June edition of my Sock Kits! And the shawl is another of the Knit 1 Breathe 1 variety. . .this time in Wollemeise!
OH!, and I finished the Shapely, Summer Sweater! I am liking how it turned out, and I have already worn it once! Oh!, and I am going to wear it again tomorrow, because it makes me happy! See?:Knit in Good Health, you Pretty Knitty People!
