In between the frogging of the sweater I repeated the watercolor cowl. It was a peace keeping project in the midst of a crisis. Different from the last version I eliminated 20 cast on stitches giving this one a more snug fit. I am super happy with the result.
And last, but not least is a mention of my neglected beading :( For this familiar beaded bracelet design I inserted one of my beloved beaded beads. I may have mentioned 100 times prior that I love bling. I think that is why I like including silver on everything. This idea came about unexpectedly. I was only planning to string up only the black pearls. My beading mat is usually an embarrassing mess of half completed ideas. There in the corner lay a few of the galvanized silver beads. Wait a minute ...why have I never thought of this before.
This blinging beauty is a size 7 and it will be up for sale just as soon as I can shoot the pictures in the daylight this week. On the tails will be dark blue pearls with an ivory beaded bead. It will be laced with the galvanized seed beads and the same clasp. Oh yes, size 7. I have a few 8 inch of this design in my shop, but I am finding this size not to be in demand.
Stop back for the sweater progress post!
