Frog me Not!

I've been looking at the different ways to make stitch markers including Lixie's method in the kits she sells and have made my first set - the "Frog Me Not" stitch markers!

These are 'good' frog charms and not the evil frogs that cause the frogging of one's knitting. I'll give you three guesses as to which blogger's going to receive these as a pressie??

Other stuff I've been up to includes hitting the sales at John Lewis, getting on with the Beaded Lace Scarf (I'm now over half way) and making another necklace "Jet Black".

It looks quite dramatic, I think, against a plain white background! Although not obvious from the photo, the beads are in three sizes with two large ones either side of the Celtic cross graduating outwards through medium to the smaller size.

They're not real jet beads of course but next time we go to Whitby, DH has promised to buy me a piece of genuine Whitby jet jewellery from here. They've got some lovely pieces.

I've also been concentrating on making one or two bracelets for children suitable to go into the little bags I knitted for the charity craft fair.

Just el cheapo plastic beads from Hobbycraft but okay I think for their purpose.

    I love those froggy stitch markers, I think I can guess who they are going to :-)

    The "jet" necklace is lovely, very dramatic. By coincidence we are going to Whitby this week during our holiday, and DH is going to buy me a piece of jet jewellery :-) Thanks for the catalogue link, I'm off to have a browse!

    You have such an eye for jewellery making. It's all so pretty. Jet Black is very striking. The bracelet is really sweet and I'm sure they'll be popular at the craft fair.

    There are no prizes for guessing how fantastic I think the frog stitch markers are.

    The frog stitchmarkers are great, just perfect for Rain!

    Your beaded scarf is coming along beautifully, I am in awe!

    I really love the celtic necklace, it's very striking. The bracelet looks fantastic too, I can see them flying out of the door at the charity fair.
