I want to do a post every week (we'll see how long that lasts) so let's do this.

Two things: earrings and rings

The earrings:

I'm not sure what to call them though. Right now I'm stuck with Medallion Chandelier Earrings or Chandelier Medallion Earrings. Does the order matter? I started out with the intention of making a bracelet from the pattern in the April 2011 issue of Bead and Button Magazine - "Kaleidoscope connection" by Julie Olah. Once I made the four medallions though, I remembered a style of earrings I'd seen and liked and thought "Why don't I make that?" and I did =D Connecting the circles was easier than I thought - I didn't even have to use any more beads. Enough talking now.

Just saying, I really like these earrings. Haha.

The rings:

Just three peyote rings. I made a couple more but didn't take pictures. 

That's it. I hope you're all asleep unlike me. [=

I actually finished it from last month but I just haven't been able to post anything yet. I took the pictures about two weeks ago so today I finally told myself to suck it up and write the post.

My first project from Crochet One-Skein Wonders - the "Bristleberry Scarf". I started this project with little knowledge of crochet and decided that I may as well go hard or go home. I had trouble in the beginning remembering the pattern. I'd have to refer to it every two rows. And what a prekke if I forgot which row I was on - trying to work the stitches out was not fun. I eventually memorized the pattern though. Felt like an absolute pro working on it without the book. I've also learned that not everything needs to be perfect. There's usually a way to Jim-squeachy the pattern so that the mistake isn't noticeable. =D Remember when I started it last month in this post? The pride I feel right now. I'm actually looking forward to cooler weather so I can wear it. [=

Here it is. I was trying to be artsy with the photos so I used the bush as props. Bear with me please.

Success! Something to look out for - a pouch/purse thing using this pattern that I found on the Internet (gotta love that Internet). I used the pattern but decided to try and make something new. I won't go on about it in this post though - this is just supposed to be a teaser.

Get excited! 

Or don't. It's all up to you.
