I forgot where I saw this but I had the materials for a while so I decided to finish the project anyway. I will update the page if I find it. The original cost about $700.00 dollars 😐 not paying that for something I can make for under $4.00!!!

I needed this in my life

Thread, Needle, Pearls, Ribbon

Secure one end to the ribbon then start adding the pearl-fold ribbon-stitch-add pearl - etc

🙂 Done

I might have to make this in a few colors

Boyfriend Neck-warmer

I really love this pattern – so easy and quick. These take me about two hours on average if I put my head to it. It can take a few extra hours if I am having wandering eyes and itchy fingers.

I made this for the DBF and he seems to like the wool color and its pretty warm too 😉 – I used wool ease in the grey?? – I lost the wrapper

Its a little big for me because his shoulders are three times my size 🙂

Knit Purse

So this started more as a scarf and ended up as a bag…it wasnt working but I have finished the original intent. I didnt use the right needle size for the scarf so I made other use of it anyway.

The wool I used

The knit

The Knit with the edges

Put together - I just need the inside and the handles

The inside fabric sewn in


Finished - I like...the handles were a problem decision between the wooden or curves...I will use the wooden handles for another project

Crotchet Scarf

I made this yesterday and I love it! I used one skein with a few yards left. This is my first crotchet project in a while and I will definately make a few more items.

I added tassles since it came out a little shorter than I expected
