Buttons, a necklace and gloves
Today I shall be doing what it says on the tin.
A result of playing with my new mini cookie cutters! I’m undecided as to whether to make a bracelet out of these, or to list some on Etsy as is. Maybe I should make some more and do both!
I really like this – it makes a cute tinkly noise as I move. I made this from chain and charms I found at a bead shop just off Carnaby Street. I found this shop ages ago on a previous trip to London, and a couple of times since, I’ve tried to go back but couldn’t find it. I walked past it completely by accident the other day, and was very glad to do so. They have a lovely collection of beads (I was drawn like a moth to a flame to the Swarovski beads) and charms, and also chain – I also got some chunky chain to make a charm bracelet. You may remember I went a bit mad buying charms at last year’s Knitting & Stitching Show, with the intent to make a charm bracelet. The chain I bought was apparently not strong enough, as it kept breaking whilst I was working with it. Very frustrating. Hopefully this new chain will be stronger!
I started the cuff of one of these gloves (I think it was intended to become a mitten) months ago, and it remained abandoned until last week, when I picked it up and just knitted. Totally on the fly, I ended up with these – quite happy with them, for a first go. They’re a bit tight though, but who needs circulation to the fingers?!
