On craftsy I found a great lady (CrocKnits )who made some great necklaces using ribbon or flag yarn. She has recently started up a blog here. Do go and check it out. She has only been up and running for a week and so am sure would love a few visits and comments.
I was really impressed and so, before our holiday went and brought some appropriate yarn. (I am very embarrassed about this next bit) Being too tight to pay for a pattern (sorry CrocKnits) I searched online and found this website (numei) with some ideas. Please don’t compare my work with hers as I did not print out the patterns and so was working blind! The ones shown on the website look very professional!
I started with a simple 3 chain necklace:
Then went onto this one with loops in:
Me being me I then started to experiment:
I think that I shall be returning to these in the non too distant future and think about developing them further with wire and beads.
Finally I wish to thank you all for your comments last week. I took on board Natalie’s idea from freespiritdesigns and did make a heart:
I actually made 2 of these and then joined them together with stuffing in the middle. I thought it would make a great and unusual key-ring.
If you don’t know either of the two blogs I have mentioned then do please go and have a look. They are both very talented people. Again I apologise to CrocKnits for doing you out of some income. Use her patterns if you decide to have a go. 🙂 She also has many others – look her up on craftsy.
As always I am going to be popping over to Handmade Harbour to see what other talented people have been up to this week (freespiritdesigns is usually there!) It really is worth it :).
