When I was at Woolfest in June I bought some gorgeously-coloured felted beads and some embroidery silks with the plan of making necklaces out of them. A mere three and a half months later I finally got round to doing that.
Bright blue and orange beads, strung on orange thread as a short necklace. I sewed a small button to one end of the thread and made a loop at the other to fasten the necklace.
Purple, burgundy and red beads on burgundy thread as a long necklace.
Obviously, that didn’t take very long. I have no idea why I put it off for so long.
In case you think putting some beads on some thread is a pretty poor excuse for actual crafting content, I did finish a pair of socks as well.
They’re the Bigger on the Inside socks by Heidi Nick, in the leftover Sparkleduck Galaxy from my Bigger on the Inside shawl; it seemed quite appropriate to pick another Doctor Who themed pattern, and I wanted swirly Time Vortex-y cables which is certainly what I got. I love the way the cables are worked around the heel increases at the back.
The only modification I made was to mirror the cable twists on the second sock. I didn’t think I would have quite enough yarn so I ended up using a different blue yarn from my stash for the toes, though it might actually have been OK in the end.
