So busy …

Want to see what I’ve been up to? I like to give Mother’s Day gifts but last year I got too busy to do so. This year I decided to make some necklaces that are relatively quick and fun to do. Of course a few I didn’t want to give away! I even bought these cute jewelry boxes from Jewelrysupply.com!

And here is the sweater I’ve been knitting on. So far I’m through 2 skeins of red Palette, and 1/2 of a black one, but I’m nowhere near halfway! This is definitely slow going.

I also started a scarf I had wanted to make for my sons’ teacher but I’m not convinced it’s going to turn out. I wanted something light, like a silk scarf you’d buy, and I think the wool I’m using is still too heavy. I thought it would be okay since it’s fingering weight, but I’m doubtful. We’ll see how it goes.

    Those necklaces are really beautiful!

    Crossing fingers for you on the wool scarf, especially since summer seems to have arrived suddenly.
