I found these earrings while poking the internet, and I just had to share.
My only question is could there be cufflinks too in the future?
A while ago now, after riding our trike home one autumn evening, my Hairy Darling said, “The beard is not enough, my face gets cold” so here is the solution. It’s now gone through two winters and regular washes and still good a new.
Made in rib with a stocking stitch section so it’s less snug over the mouth, eye slot tailored to fit over glasses, and folds up to look like an ordinary wooly hat, though HD does tweak the folds so he gets a bit of shade for his eyes.
Made from http://anjicatsrockingchair.yarnshopping.com/en/ascot-alpaca-cream#inc579 then hand dyed with black to create the marl effect.
I have been asked on many occasions “Why have handmade socks?” and there are so many answers.
So, if you are tempted feel free to contact me. Pricing is individual, but the model is Materials + Making Fee + Postage.
“Can you make something for my Hubby to wear when he’s in his workshop so his hands don’t get cold? He keeps borrowing my gloves and getting them mucky”
These little wristers are just enough to cover from wrist to knuckles. No fingers and just a cap on the thumb so nothing to restrict or catch on the fingers themselves. Made in Single Rib for a snug fit all round.
Yarn: New Lanark Mills Double Knit 100% Wool, Shades Woodland and Natural Black
After reconstructive surgery on his left foot, Mr B’s feet don’t match. The hospital did a good job; the length is about the same, but the diameters are different. These socks are tailored to each foot with a textural indicator for right and left. Boot socks, knitted in Furrow Rib with reinforced heels, Heel Stitch in v1 and Partridge Stitch in v2.
Having been invited by a friend, I attended a lovely event yesterday evening at the Tecton Art Centre. http://www.tectonartcentre.com/
This was my first visit to this establishment and I am so glad to have found it. The gallery is small but has fine and varied examples of crafting and art in multiple medias. Glass, fabric, metal, yarn, wood, ceramics, paintings, sculptures, sketches and photographic prints were all represented and displayed to good effect.
The people were warm and welcoming and I apologise for not remembering many names, but I look forward to getting to know you all in the future.
Thank you all for a delightful evening.
