Beads, Knit and Playday

This is the latest necklace, that I have added to my collection. It is called the Button Collection and is by Connie Wright from Bowen Island. I love wearing it. Each little bead or button is a real treasure. She also knits incredible sweaters.

The two hats are for the homeless, the dark wool was given to me to use, but the first hat is more child sized, so I added some sock wool which picked up the colours in the dark yarn. The pattern is from the Purl Experience by Sally Melville. The pattern is Canadian-Winter Hat.The dark yarn is Windsor Tweeds from Tahki, and the second hat I added Indigo sock yarn. Project Spectrum 3 is now in the water element and the colours are blue, black and purple.

Two weeks ago, I got together with 3 friends to play. We made some creative embellishments from the book by Sherrill Kahn. So we stamped on fabric, wrapped pipe cleaners, made some UTEE beads, wrapped some fabric beads with yarns and made an embellishment using page protectors. I haven’t photographed the small stamped doll or the air dry clay buttons that we had rubber stamped as well. Click to see close up of the beads and pipe cleaner. So far this group is too much of the same value of colour, so still thinking of the next move. I will be combing these bits into a journal.
