Love hearts earrings

In one of my recently bought books, Wire Knits by Heather Kingsley-Heath I put an eye on the pattern with hearts necklace and earrings. Before I never had a clue that from simple knitted square one can make such a thing as heart or other forms. So, I tried and! Voila! It works!!!!

When I started to make earrings I thought abut my friend, but when I finished, I decided to keep them for myself.

There will be another pair for the friend.

Wire knit leaf earrings

Pattern for those earrings I saw first at Ravelry. There was a picture with beautiful wire knitted earrings. Pattern seemed easy and I tried to make a pair. They could be little bit more even, but still I am satisfied. Also feeling to wear self-made jewelry is special.

Books are here!

Few days ago I got books which I bought from Adlibris. Surprise, surprise, all of them are about some kind of crafts! (Actually I ordered one more book which was not about crafts, but delivery of that was delayed).

Now I have a lot of inspiration and guidance.

How do you recognize my friends?

By bracelets, of course ;)

After my first attempt to knit with wire and beads, I made some more bracelets for my friends. As I went to Latvia for 1 week and planned to meet some of my nearest friends, I wanted to make something special for all of them. This is what I managed. Thought, I forgot to take photos with few of the bracelets.

Too much yarn?

I together with my child went to Latvia for a week. Partly to work and partly to visit my parents. Meanwhile my friend Jo and cat Tova stayed at home in Stockholm.

One evening we chatted throught internet and I told that I was at yarn shop, but bought nothing ;( (never happened with me before)

Jo answered: oh, thats good, because I opened one drawer of a bureau today – just yarn, opened second drawer - just yarn, opened third - just yarn. Then I thought, isn´t this too much?

Me: Did you look at one bureau or both?

Jo: one.
