FOs, and Spock

Older Spock.

Not many days left of the month to post Spock pics. Enjoy them while you can.

I have finally given satisfaction to the beaded Christmas ornament craving. I've made this cover in preparation for a class I'm scheduled to teach in November.

I used 2 colors of size 11 Japanese seed beads, dark rose and white, and some 6mm cloisonne beads with little pink flowers on them. Me likes.

I've finished the Opal 1292 bootees. For this pair I did 2x2 rib in the cuff.

Another view.

I've started another pair. The yarn is a vintage baby pompadour with a medium to dark blue thread running through it. Very pretty stuff. I'll take pics later.

A couple months ago I joined an internet thing, game, whatever you wanna call it called Pay It Forward. Basically the way it works is that you post on your blog that you're joining the Pay It Forward game, you post the rules which say you will make something and send it to the first 5 people who leave a comment on your post, and then you do it. Everyone who posts a comment then has to do the same thing. I posted a comment on the blog where I saw the PIF post, then posted on my blog.

Well, to make a long story short, last Thursday this arrived in my mailbox.

It's a bead knitted amulet necklace. It's even in my favorite color. It came from Julie Harper of the Jewelry Goddess blog. It's her PIF to me. I was so surprised!I love it. It's so pretty. Thank you Jewels! It was so much fun to find it in my mail box.

Now, to figure out what to make for my PIF commenters.

Have a great day.
