Necklace and 1/2 a Shawl...

Okay, pictures to my necklace as promised...

The Miyuki beading kit for a really cool-looking necklace

A beaded spiral component.

All beaded components done. Waiting to be strung together.

String them together... Unsuccessfully... I broke the crimper end..

Replaced with the kinda ugly-looking clasp...

Finally got a clasp I really like!

Wearing it to my friend's wedding dinner...


And talking about wedding dinner.. Didn't I say I had to finish knitting a shawl? No way can I finish the whole thing by yesterday!... Only managed to knit up to slightly more than half the shawl...

The eyelets on one of the sides (width-wise)... I yarned over wrongly on the purl side... They don't look like eyelets at all.. ==''' But it gave a pretty cool effect though.. But I think running ribbons through the eyelets will hide the mistake.. As for the 2 sides (length-wise), they don't look symmetrical, do they... That's because there are bind overs... I wouldn't want to keep re-attaching new yarn every four rows (at the ending columns), so I sort of improvised the "bind-over". Since I will be running ribbon through that column of eyelets, I think it's fine that the both sides don't look exactly the same. The main body consists of lattice lace and simple cables.

Slightly longer.. Can see how the cables are placed in the lattice lace.

This is where I stop currently. Shall continue later. Will run ribbon through some of the eyelets and attach fringe to each side(width-wise) of the shawl.

Your shawl's turning out pretty nicely. I like the colour! What yarn are you using?

Chris,你有认识可以编曲的朋友吗?我这里有写好的词曲、吉他DEMO和五线谱,需要做一下编曲。倒是不着急的。
