So for my presents I'm knitting a couple of my friends neck warmers - they seem to be the in thing at the moment. Personally I don't like anything around my neck -feels claustrophobic. I found 2 patterns that I liked the look of and didn't take too long to make. One was from ravelry and the other was from Lynne's Pattern Parlour both of them are free for personal use and are very easy to make up. It took me longer than an hour to make them but then I find that I can't knit quickly with large knitting needles and I guess I'm not a "proper" knitter:).
The blue one is the ravelry pattern and the purple one is from Lynne's Pattern Parlour. The blue wool Aero by King Cole and the purple wool is Sirdar Big Softie - each has taken one ball of wool but you can use more if you wanted. The flowers that you can see on each scarf are brooches that I'd made some time back and co-ordinate very well.
Last week I posted a photograph of the dress I was going to wear to the sole traders Christmas meal what I didn't have at the time was the jewellery that I was going to wear. Well I managed to make a beaded necklace and a ring in grey/blue and matt red seed beads.
That's it from me for today. If you would like to see more creativeness why not pop on over to Wendy's and see what the other creative people have been busy making.
