Making Every Stitch Count

Being creative and not being able to create much, is harder than I thought. It will be christmas before my shoulders will be better, I am told. I pray it will be tomorrow... LOL! 

Again, I knitted the design Red Katana. Garter stitch with a little graphic twist and only two colors. I love wearing this and knitting it. 

Polymer clay bracelet to match my new scarf. 
I finished it in May. And took a chance on making a bracelet with a match a month or so ago.

Not the best thing to do, but I could use my pasta machine and make the beads as I wanted.

Polymer clay is a really fun medium to work with.

And these bracelets takes little effort and still makes a great accesorie for some knitted garment.

Such a wonderful thing to make a bracelet.

It takes little effort and still gives that good feeling of making something I can use pretty quick.

And I have started another scarf and knit a few rows every day.

It is like taking some kind of vitamin to just have those needles and the yarn.

Garter stitch and some great colors and the world is in balance. The little things are often those that makes the biggest difference, is it not?

Have you experienced a long period of not being able to create? What did you do?

  1. God bedring til skuldrene, det er utrolig kjedelig å måtte ha på vent det man liker å gjøre. Men godt du har fått lov til å ta litt masker her og der, en vitamininnsprøyting.

  2. Jeg har jo godt fornemmet dine dårlige skuldre i et stykke tid. Hvordan gik det dog så galt? Jeg render også ind i problemer en gang imellem, men det er altid musklerne i min overarm der driller. Heldigvis ikke mine led. Det forsvinder altid på et par uger. Det er jo strikkens svøbe at det er sådan en ensidig gentaget bevægelse:( Andre hobbyer hjælper også. Jeg har, efter mange år, støvet min symaskine af. Det har jeg meget fornøjelse af. Jeg håber at dine skuldre går i orden igen og at du har haft en god weekend!

    1. Ja, det gad jeg også vide Dorte. Lang historie og dårlig behandling for en del år siden... Skal nok finde noget. Har jo maskemarkørene som er sjove at lave :-)

  4. You take care of yourself Lone!!! I want you healthy! Not until Christmas?? Wow! I know it's hard, but please don't over do anything ok!!!
    I love your creations! That bracelet is adorable! Love the colours!
    I don't like not being able to create when I want too! But, maybe it's a sign for us to rest a bit! LOL!
    I tried to e-mail you the other day, to say hi and it bounced back to me?? Don't know why? Said, the email didn't exist?

  5. ØV ØV - jeg håber ligesom de andre, at du får mulighed for at strikke igen. Ellers er du jo konen, der nok skal finde på noget, tror jeg :-) Vidunderligt tørklæde i fantastiske farver - som sædvanlig :-)

  6. Så kjedelig med skuldrene dine. Forstår at du er frustrert når du ikke får strikket det du ønsker. Som du sier når man er kreativ må man få utløp for denne på et eller annet vis. Forhåpentligvis blir det rom for litt smykkelaging. Veldig gøy med matchende armbånd.

    Fargene var som vanlig en god og fargerik kombinasjon, til tross for at det bare var 2!
