Earings and Bracelets


I'm Eden, and I am going to post about some earrings and bracelets that I made for my brother and mum.
It is called beading and I have been doing it for about 2 and 1/2 years now.
These are really simple to make, but they can be quite expensive. The end product is great though.

Support Our Soldiers

I recieved an email from one of the knit and natter groups that I belong to. The lady who runs it had asked Support Our Soldiers if we could do anything for them and they have asked for people to knit mini xmas stockings if you click on that you'll get the pattern. There are about 3 1/4 inches long and really , really easy to do. If you click on the Support Our Soldiers link and look in the sidebar under xmas parcels it gives you an address to send them to.
They only weigh 5 grms each, the Post Box is in England, I do know times are hard but if you feel you could send a couple I'm sure they would be appreciated.
I hope I haven't offended anybody by asking but I just had to!

Hooded Jumper ( probably X 4!)


I finished knitting this last night, so at my knit and natter club this morning I sewed it up.
Unfortunately for me Cody and Callum have both said they would like one! I've started Callums in a darker blue wool, I know when they're done Soloman's going to say he would like one too. So you could be seeing a few of these here!

Autumnal owl brooch

Thought I'd share this little brooch that I've made for my Mum. She's always helping me out, giving me good advice and being the kind of Mum we all hope are are and can be to our children.  She's been fond of owls for as long as I can remember, so when I saw this owl charm I knew immediately I'd would use it to make something for her. She likes my brooches that I sell (and has quite a collection), so an owl brooch seemed fitting. It's quite Autumnal too I think, so great for this time of year.

Dawny, I'm loving the updated blog surround - looks fabulous.  I tried to comment several times earlier to let you know this, but unfortunately blogger wouldn't let me.

I belong to these forums

No pictures, just a couple of links . I belong to both these forums, just joined one today and the other one I've belonged to for a while. The loving hands one does seasonal challenges. I also belong to a local knit and natter group that is one of the groups within the forum, if that makes sense? Their main challenge is just to knit a square which are collected and then sewn together by somebody at the forum I think! There are loads and loads of free patterns for all sorts on both forums, both knitted and crocheted. So when you have a spare couple of hours! ( because when you get on there you're addicted!) go and take a look
www.knittingparadise.com and www.lovinghands.org.uk
Happy browsing XX
