More socks – walking ones this time. Made with DK yarn, which made them a lot quicker to knit up. I used a hand-dyed yarn for the main socks, and added accents for the cuff, toe, and heel.

Shetland lace shawl, 180cm (6ft) across, and 130cm (4ft 3in) on each edge. Made of Shetland 1-ply cobweb lace. It used 50g, and was knitted on 3.75mm circular needles (80cm long). The pattern came from the magazine Let’s Knit, Issue 32.

Don’t ask how long I’ve been knitting it, but it is finally finished! And the completed article does fit through a wedding ring, like it is meant to 🙂

seaglass big earrings.

Earrings made from sea glass found on the shore here in Port William, silver plated jewellery wire and silver findings. The big pieces were a lot easier to wire than the small ones. First attempts, so not too bad, considering.
