Knitting Keeping Me Sane!!

While waiting for the work to get done on our new engine, I'm knitting to keep from going crazy. I love taking a basic pattern and changing it. This sweet little sweater and matching hat are for a 6 month old.
Can't wait to start my creative juices flowing for Sam's set.

When buying jewelry in a foreign country be careful ! Many countries do not have regulations safeguarding the customer.

This beautiful necklace was purchased in Italy. It was put together using only the string the manufacturer uses to sell the original beads on. That means the beads were all intended to be restrung.

The owner of this piece wore it and of course after a time it fell apart. You can only image the mess of beads everywhere. Everything has been restrung using softflex, Swarovski pearls and replacement beads where needed. Beautiful again!!

Waiting for the mechanic

In between waiting for the mechanic, fiberglass guy and a host of others to get the new engine installed on Cape St. James, I needed a small easy to put down project. These cable footies were just the ticket. Quick to knit, wonderful pattern and will make great gifts. Now how to get non-knitters to appreciate the value of each stitch being made one loop at a time.
