I tried to load photos earlier, hope they work this time. I am knitting a blue v-neck jacket for a new baby boy, born on Friday 21st, to a friend of mine. I had knit a pink jacket (below) but was proved wrong!! I have also knit a white jacket and a lemon one, but I like to give something blue to a boy as well!!

At craft classes last night we learned how to make jewellery, I must admit that I thought it was as simple as threading beads on a string!!! We made proper stuff using crimpers and pliers and cutters!!! The pictures are of the same necklace & earrings, but one show the colours better. The classes are over, but with only 4 classes, I have learned 2 new crafts, cross stitch and jewellery.

I have finally added the finishing touches to the blue hooded jacket. I also finished the striped jumper last night. There were lots of threads to pull in!!! Both of these garments are for a local yarn store, so I thought it best to log them before passing them on. Both are double knitting.

This week we started an new cross stitch project and made a couple of cards. Some of the other class members made cards with quilled flowers. The cottage was my first attempt at cross stitch and I have taken on a bigger cottage this week! We signed up to go to a craft fair in theKing's Hall - Belfast on 12/4/08. Keep me from spending too much please!!!
