New Hobbies

I have Crafter's ADD. I need to work on more than one project at once, otherwise my fingers get twitchy. This does result in a large pile of UFOs in my To-Do bin. One the other hand, it sometimes leads me to try out new crafts. Lately, I've become a knitter.



I'm working on a pair of gloves.



I've made geeky washcloths.



And I've started to incorporate beads into my knitting. This big lumpy thing is a circle shawl that I'm going to dye once it's finished.

I have also recently acquired a sewing machine.



Unfortunately, I'm not the only one who thinks the sewing machine is nifty.

New Necklace

My crafting urges have been satisfied by knitting lately, but during a cleaning rampage I condensed my beadwork supplies and decided to procrastinate by whipping up a quick necklace.



I used blue goldstone beads, purple glass rounds, and a blue goldstone pendant I picked up during my stay in Berlin. The rounds are less blue than they appear in the photo.
