WIP Wednesday 5/07/08

I am working on the gusset of my Pomatomus sock. I have figured out the way the stitch pattern works too, so I find myself not having to look at the chart as much, which makes things much easier.

I finished my Turkish Loop Bead Crochet necklace over the weekend.

It's a 2-loop rope using lavender and purple iris size 11 Japanese seed beads. I used size 12 DMC Perle Cotton in black for the thread, and a size 10 steel crochet hook.

The clasp is a Bali Silver toggle. I love this clasp. I wish I could remember where I bought it so I could get another.

The pendant is made of pieces of shell. The large fire polished crystal is 12mm, and black with ab finish on the top and bottom.

Yesterday morning, while I was getting ready to go to bead group, the boys took advantage of a brief bit of sunshine. Iggies are the ultimate sun worshipers.

Today I deliver my toys to Knit Wits. Looking forward to the meeting. It's always fun.

Have a good day.
