The sun has set, the darkness has spread out and quiet, snowy Sunday is closing. We have had warm weather for some time now and I would love to say that the spring is here. I don't dare to say it out loud just yet, but look at these...
I have been crafting small things. For some time I have admired tiny macaroon coin purses that have been popping up here and there in the internet. After I managed to find the required materials I made these two and I absolutely loved the process and the final products have kept me happy.
Other than macaroons, I made this necklace to go with the brown tunic. Putting together this took quite some time since I made different set of beads first and then realized that they were not right at all and had to make another set for this one.
Thank you for your comments on the tunic. The pattern is my own. It is not genuine, I mean that there are many similar ones out there but I have made the pattern from the very beginning according to my own measurements. I have a few basic patterns that I can use over and over again, only making little adjustments or changes. I like to sew but don't get around to do it often enough. I have subscribed to the Threads magazine for years and I like it very, very much. There aren't any patterns but it is a source of good information.
And yes, I did wet-block the ribbing of Foxglove, I think that wet-blocking in knitting is like ironing in sewing. So far I have not found a good "big" knit yet, but I do hope that March brings something big and interesting with small gauge.
While I look forward to that, wool with you,
