Christmas napkin rings

From Knitty, to my grandparents. It's kind of a pain in the butt to knit with wire, but the results were so great! Click here for the pattern. Once you knit a flat piece of wire fabric, you have to shape and sew it. I thought it would be easier to knit in the round. Wrong. It is nearly impossible.

The bead store in my town didn't have the necessary equipment, (apparently 34 gauge wire is very, very thin as beading goes), but Fire Mountain Gems online is a bead wholesaler with really great prices. They sell great bags of assorted beads that were perfect for the big beads for this project.

Croc pants

A short break from knitting resulted in these pants for Eliza. At least she will be well camouflaged in the Everglades. Our landlord's cat, King, wanted to help.

purple ones for me, and another identical gray pair for eliza. looks like these things guys probably only last one season.

stash scarf

found two balls of unlabeled yarn in my stash and knit them up!

now that I've moved I've spent a lot more time starting projects than trying frantically to finish them up. so I've got a few bags, a tie, and a hat in the works.
