I found these ata local bead shop. They're meant for a bracelet's clasp, but they were too beautiful for me to pass up. They just went so well up against the interweaving of tis shaws stitchwork.
Again, a bit blurry, but hope you can see it well enough.
So, the afternoon light wasn't as good as I thought.
Here's the first prototype metal (aluminum) yarn bowl - let me know what you think - these are in the early stages of production and we can still tweak the design a bit.
it's just to post a pic of the surprise snow this morning...
but I did knit the hat myself!
This was fun!!!!!!!!
