Still Handmade

I knit some fun things this year for my mom and sisters. Only one of my sisters lives in a place where the weather is really cold so I knit this cowl for her. This yarn is so wonderful! The picture, of course, doesn't do it justice, but it is really a very pretty raspberry color and will look beautiful next to a black coat. Hope she enjoys it.


Here are the two necklaces I made using glass pendants which most craft stores sell. I knit I-cord using pearl cotton #5 and complimentary Kreinik #8 braid. I think they turned out pretty well. I'm the only non-jewelry freak in my family, so when I get the urge to do something like this there is always someone to give it to.
