Golden skulls

Well, the space invaders went down really well,
so I decided to continue exploring some new patterns.

Golden skulls

And I reused this Inca-inspired pattern,
that I knitted many (oh, so many...) years ago.

Space invaders

I love space invaders!
So I came up with the idea to bead-knit them on cuffs.
Pretty cool, eh!

Black merino cuffs with silver beads

Another one soon to be finished

I’m doing a market in Royal Oak tomorrow.
I have heard that it’s a great market with a wonderful atmosphere
so I’m really excited!

I have finished some new products for the market and yes,
the space invaders are coming along as well!

Black merino cuffs with silver beads

Black merino cuffs with golden sparkly beads

Black merino cuffs with turqoise sparkly beads

And some new pretty flowers on hair clips and hair ties,
made of my hand-dyed cotton yarn

I have also made a treat for myself.
A bright, funky flower brooch for my hot pink coat!

Now on Felt

I’m so excited – I have finally started up my own shop on Felt!

Never heard of Felt? It’s a brilliant web shop where NZ crafters
and designers can list their products. So if you’re looking for a cool,
handmade gift or treat – this is the place to go!

So far there is yarn and brooches for sale in my shop,
but more to come. Stay tuned!

Click the image to go to my shop. There is also a button at the top in the left column.

Happy couple

I have spent many hours lately working on two pieces for an exhibition.
It’s called ‘Vantage Point’ and it’s the annual member’s exhibition
at Depot Artspace here in Devonport.

My pieces are beadknitted on hand-dyed cotton and the diptych is called
Happy Couple

Don’t get it?
