Heels!

Check out those heels....



I did turn the kilt hose heel last night as promised.

I am loving the canada sock...there is a little moss stitch chevron detail down the sides and the crazy fair isle easily hides under your pants...if you don't want to sport it.

(notice the knitpicks needle! Love it. They work wonderfully for magic loop, the cord is so flexible. The points on these needles are near perfect...but they are noticeably heavier...not that it bothers me in such a small size needle.)

I'm painting...like crazy. My hands hurt. The boys room is done, the bathroom will be done today and the trim in the basement is done. Not too much left so soon I will be able to play with this. No more colouring in squares...the star wars hat pattern is not far off!

Luckily, it appears that the paint fumes have not harmed your ability to count ;-) Lovely socks!

Lovely heels. What colors are you painting? I've been thinking of painting my bedroom, but then of course I want a new quilt and curtains and pillows... it goes on forever.

OOh, I've made the Canada socks. Aren't they great?

Good job on the heels. They look great. Love the Canada sock. Of course! ;)

Hope the paint fumes aren't getting to you too much.

The heels look great, as do the whole of the socks! Good luck painting and I hope your hands stop hurting!

Love the moss chevron detail! And thanks for working on the Star Wars hat when you're already so busy!

This design uses a basic right angle weave technique to create a Crystal Bracelet. Cut a length of Nymo beading thread approximately 1.5metres or as long as you are comfortable using. About 15 cm from the end attach a bead Crystal Bottle Stopper. Each bead always has a seed bead either side of the Crystal Paperweight. So always add on bead "units" for example, one seed beads one crystal (or pearl) then one Crystal Decoration, every time you need to add on beads. Thread on 4 small Crystal Earring units: 1 seed bead, 1 crystal, 1 seed bead, 4 times. Allow beads to fall down near your bead Crystal Ring. Add on 1 small crystal unit, 1 small pearl unit and 1 small crystal unit. PNT next small Crystal Pendant (on the circle you have just added on) then through small pearl unit. Add on 3 small pearl units, units, then PNT existing small Crystal Necklace on the previous circle, and then pull thread up. You will now have 3 adjoining circles. A friendship bracelet is a token of love and affection exchanged between friends to celebrate and strengthen the ties of their friendship.
