In Progress: Bottle Cap Necklaces

I recently got some painted bottle caps to use for making necklaces, bracelets, or pins. I’ve been working on some images to go inside of them.

Unfortunately, the colors became strange when I uploaded the pictures to WordPress. Imagine the purple spots as more magenta colored.

I’m hoping to also use these images as patterns for silk-screening soon, and the necklaces with these should be finished by next week.

Let’s Get Dressed Up – One Skein Shrug, Part 2

I mentioned before in the “One Skein Knit Shrug” post that my mom had already requested a second, fancier shrug for a gala she had for work. Like the first one I made, I had this one mostly finished before having to rip it out and start again. This time I had managed to get six stitches off on one sleeve, and I have absolutely no idea how I did that.

After starting over (using my new, semi-fancy row counter app – Knit Counter Lite. There’s a paid version, but I’m broke and this one works pretty well.) I managed to finish it just in time for the gala.

I used a combination of Vanna’s Glamour in Platinum (150) and Bernat Boa in Royal Blue (46208). I added the Boa every three rows to make the silver show through.

What do you think of how it turned out? What should I make next?
