Weekly Sum-Up #24

I've been busy. Very busy. I've been thrown into the crafting ''bussiness'' - not entirely voluntary - and now I spend every second of my free time kitting, pick pointing and crocheting. And I love it. My hands hurt so bad while I'm typing this ... that's what you get after 2 days of holding a knitting/crochet needle.

These were just some sample pick pointings. Just to see how it works and what I like. And I think these would be great for greeting cards.
Pick Point

I made myself a woolen schawl back in 2002. I can't believe it's been 10 years. And now I'm making myself a new one. It might have to wait a couple of months (or a year) before I'll wear it, but I enjoy knitting. And it will be a pretty one. Purple.

I don't know how I feel about crochet things. They're nice, but they can get old fashioned really fast. White doilies, napkins and other stuff to cover the furniture don't impress me. It's been a week since I first tried to crochet. And I made this bracelet using an online tutorial. It's not perfect, but it's mine and I love it. =)
Crochet Bracelet

What do you think? Is it OK for a first time crochet?

On another note: I got this owl ring via Ebay a while ago. It's a size 7 (US, 17mm), but it doesn't fit me. Well, I can get it on, but you can see the injuries on my finger... And that's why I'm giving it away. If you want it, just post a comment with your e-mail address. I'll pick someone in the next few days and let that person know.
Owl Ring

Last year I've been really into the Eurovision song contest. And now Slovenia has picked another song for the contest. The singer's name is Eva Boto and her song is called Verjamem (I Believe). The song's composer is also the composer of the 2007 Eurosong winner song - Molitva. I don't think it will make any difference, but we'll see. BTW: Eva is only 16 years old. Can you believe that?



Sorry I have no links and other stuff for you. I'm just so tired (I don't even know what I'm writing ATM). I think I need a good sleep.

Thanks for looking and commenting!

  3. Joj nihrida, ti pa si res ustvarjala duša! :) Česa pa ti ne znaš? :)

    Eva res lepo poje, krasen vokal! Moj favorit za letos pa je Željko. :) Bomo videli!

  5. Great job on the bracelet...that is very good for a first time project! Your projects are lovely and I can't wait to see what you knit up :)

  6. Ma daj, ti imaš čisto preveč talentov. :) Zelo lepe kartice, in zapestnica je perfektna! Če bi bila namesto rdeče še zelena, bi ti jo res morala ukrasti, tako pa se bom lahko zadržala. ;) Brez heca, res lepo narejeno!

    Sovica mi je izredno všeč, tako da dodajam še svoj email: did.someone.say.nailpolish (at) gmail.com. Odkar sem izgubila svoj najljubši prstan, iščem kakšnega, v katerega bi se zatreskala.

    In ja, Eva ima neverjeten glas. Pa 16 let, res je še mulčica. Upam, da ji uspe.

  8. You're so skilled! Crotchet isn't easy, but you've done a great job.

  9. Jaz se pred vsako zimo znova naučim štrikati - si naredim šal ali dva, potem pa čez leto spet pozabim. xD In res lepa zapestnica, sploh kombinacija barv. ^.^

    Prstanček je čudovit, zato bom tudi jaz pripisala svoj mejl: nuusheftw[at]gmail[dot]com :)

    Za Evo em pa res vesela, ker ima čudovit glas. No, vesela sem že samo zato ker dvojčici nista zmagali...

  10. Love the star pick points, they really make great greeting/holiday cards! And the crochet bracelet turned out beautiful, I would never have guessed it's your first time crochet. The yarn you used is also very pretty there (as is that purple wool). Damn, you've gotten me in a knitting mood here!

  18. I've been wanting to learn how to knit and crochet. It's so pretty! I really like that owl ring too, my email is lourdes168@sbcglobal.net

  19. Knitting and crocheting are two hobbies that I've wanted to pick up for a while, but I still haven't gotten around to yet. The owl is so cute! I'm sorry it didn't end up fitting you. My email is sarahkwoodall at gmail dot com.

  20. Those cards are really beautiful! Could you perhaps show us how does the back side look? Are there little knots there or are the strings somehow connected? I would love to know.
    Your bracelet is so lovely, I don't think I've ever seen crochet in jewelry. Yours look really hard to make.
    I also enjoy knitting, but I'm so darn slow :) How long does it take for you to knit a whole shawl? I hope you will show us when you finish. The color you chose is very pretty. Although the knitting seems kinda tight, won't it turn out a bit firm? I like my shawls loose and fluffy :)

  21. I think it's AWESOME to find out that you knit. I knit, too. And I have a knitting blog at http://niksknits.blogspot.com

  22. Tudi jaz sem par let nazaj začela s štrikanjem lastnega šala pa sem prehitro obupala, upam da nam pokažeš rezultat in me zopet navdušiš ;)

    ReplyDelete
  23. That's great that you can knit and crochet. The pick pointing is stunning. I've never heard the name before. It sort of looks like something I got on a postcard from Spain about 20+ years ago. Love the bracelet also. Your a talented woman. I'd love to see a purple shawl. Hope you get it finished soon. Does it take a long time?

  24. I love that bracelet! Do you have a link to the online tutorial for it? I'd love to make one for me!

  25. That owl-ring is gorgeous!
    I want my chance for the give-away ;-)
    I was hooked on owls at birth since my parents put up a mobile with little sparkling owls over my bed.

  26. That owl ring is too precious. I love owls as they are observant and silent creatures...kind of like me :P Also, I think your crochet bracelet is very cool and unique. It's not old fashioned at all for a crochet item.

  27. Could you post the link to the tutorial you used? I would love to make some for me and friends! Thanks!!

  28. Pretty crochet bracelets:D
    I hope Sweden wins ESC this year. Loreen is awesome:
