I’ve been a pretty awful blogger of late. Much too busy with all my projects and such. I thought I would put my latest up here since I finally got a new camera with really great resolution. It doesn’t make up for the lousy photographer I am, so please excuse me for being out of focus!
Here is my just completed project. It is knitted with 26 gauge gold filled wire and 5 different kinds of Swavorski crystals. It was knitted on a size 4 bamboo needle across 3 stitches using garter stitch. I purl when knitting with wire instead of knit as it is much easier to wrap the wire around the needle with purling.
It is actually the second necklace with wire and crystals which I have done in the past 2 weeks. The other one was in rose, pale green and deep rose. However, that one the beads were all the same shape. I think this one is a little too dressy for work so I may make another one with more “casual” beads.
I have completed many projects in the past six months which I will be posting over the next few weeks. Now that I have the new camera, I’m going to try to get pictures of all these things and document how I made each item.
Until next time…
