Sparkling Or Not

Felted bracelets with sparkling beads.
Glass beads and svarowski beads are something to make wool sparkle. These bracelets are so easy and quick to knit that I could easily get too many of them.

I have used stash yarn, Finull, held double. I cast on 8 stitches and knit stockinette stitch for 23cm. Sew the ends together and felt them in the washer. I let them dry on a glass bottle to form them after washing. That makes them totally round and keeping their shape.

I found some glass beads and sequins and simply sew it on. Very sparkling and actually nice. I like them a lot and they keep my wrists warm as well.

Owls in ceramics for stitch markers.
I can not knit a lot these days. Right now nothing, to be honest. Simply depressing to not create in my favorite way. Life is hard - ask anyone who have tried... LOL!

Anyway, I manage to make stitch markers and those are so much fun. Only problem is that there are a lot of them now. I sold some before christmas and hope to get rid of more. But as you know, shipping costs are extremely high. So I keep it where I live - I should move to a larger place...

When life gives you lemons,
throw them back and demand chocolate
