While I'm Knitting Away...

While I'm knitting away on this incredibly soft bolero, I unfortunately have no fun little crafty projects to share. Don't worry, I'm keeping up with the creative every day thing. But it's mostly just knitting. I could share the daily progress on my green mass of yarn right now, but I figured you'd much prefer to see the FOs. So! I'm going to share some of my previously made projects with the world. :)

First up is a necklace that had been swirling around in the recesses of my mind for some time before I let it out. The idea for this piece started with New Years Eve 2006. My roommate decided to drink the last bottle of my wedding champagne while I was asleep. So, I saved the cork and decided that it needed to be a necklace. So I cut a cross section of the end of the cork, made a bezel, and turned it into a necklace. It's holding up very well. I just love it! :) (And it goes with so many outfits!)

Very fun necklace. My creative everyday is a little same same old sometimes too. Can't wait to see what you have been working on....

I'm glad you're still being creative, and I can't wait to see the knitting when you're finished!

The necklace is adorable! I think I still have our wedding wine cork somewhere as well. If I do, Ill definitely give something like this a try!

But on making another.. my silversmithing supplies are kinda sorta packed up.

Plus silver is soo expensive right now.. & I just moved.. so I'm not sure where to get regular silver sheet here.

But! If I do somehow find the room/stuff, i'll make you one. :) I miss silversmithing soooo much
