So there is now the most massive list of necklaces to make. The girls are all very keen to give them to teachers, and I’ve had a few people ask me to make ones for their kiddos. And then my girls of course need them too. But that’s ok, because I am all about quick knits. Ask again though when I’m done. Six down. Twelve, yes TWELVE to go.
These are all tone on tone. Wasn’t sure how much I could like them, as I find that contrast in colours makes a piece stand out. However, I am quite pleased with these. KM7 and KT4 both had teachers having their last day this week, so I had to get a move on.
The blue one was knit in DK cotton on 3.25mm needles using size 6 seed beads. This was for a teacher whose favourite colour was like the blue of the sky.
This one is my first on bamboo. I used the Stella Bamboo for it from my leftover stash pile. Not too sure it will hold up as the yarn is a mini knitted tube. So one snag and the yarn itself unravels. But it’s nice and soft around the neck.
The green is cotton again, which I prefer. Decided this is for a family member, who loves green.
Now, off to string some more beads. Am going to branch out a bit on the next ones I think.
