Me Made May – week 4

Posted in Knitting, Tatting at 6:28 am by dianelaces

This was the last week and I nearly made it to the end with something different every day.  Had it been winter and I was wearing wool socks every day this would have been a snap.  However, I am not complaining about Spring!

Tuesday, May 26 – tatted pendant.  This pattern is by Marilee Rockley and is in one of her boutique jewelry books.  It’s actually an earring pattern, but the beads I chose were pretty heavy and I love it as a pendant.  One of those things I forget to wear!

Wednesday, May 27 – Blue Celtic knot earrings.  This pattern is by Rozella Linden and I love it.  You can make it with or without picots and I like the clean look without picots.

Thursday, May 28 – beaded earrings NOT made by me.  These were made for me by one of my lovely nieces, Sierra, and they go with so much of my wardrobe that I wear them a lot.  Thank you Honey!  My other niece, Abby, is a young seamstress and she is very creative as well.  She isn’t afraid to try anything.

Friday, May 29 – seems fitting to end the month wear I started with my Rusted Root pullover.  This is a great garment for this time of the year with the cotton/linen blend yarn.

This was a great challenge for me and I’m eager to try it again next year.  Thanks to @sarapomegranate and her Yarns at Yin Hoo podcast for suggesting it.
