Today I thought I would show you two projects I made from wool over the Christmas period. Yes I know that was over a month ago but I forgot to photograph them before now.
Both items were inspired by the very multi-talented Anjie over on Pom Pom Emporium blog. She is a very clever and successful crafter and can turn her hand to almost any craft it seems from reading her blog.
First I tried the knitted necklace and my first go at knitting with four double ended needles. eek!
I did get myself into a right old mess with the needles but soon got the hang of it. The close up photo shows where I went wrong and the bead has knitted inside out - please don't ask me how I managed that! haha
The second project was a lot simpler and took be back to when I was very young making pom poms - it was very therapeutic winding wool around a cardboard ring - I enjoyed it no end.
Needlesstosay I didn't finish in time to put it up this Christmas but there is always Christmas 2010 isn't there? haha
Thank you for stopping by my little blog. :)
