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.
