Simple knotted hemp with striped beads and silver shell button. I plan to remake this so it wraps around twice. I love how the ruby zoisite turned out braided with black leather. The last project is my first one with memory wire. It used curved tubes and Swarovski pearls.
Fun fun fun!

I also pieced the Island Batik Strip Tease Pack, adding the black blocks. There are many tutorials on this quick piecing method. It's about a 60 inch square so I'm not going to sash or border it, just bind it. I'm looking in to sending it out for quilting.
Yarn: Socks that Rock, Tourmaline
Needles: Size 3
Mods: CO 48 stitches.
Comments: This is a very nice toe up sock pattern with a very simple cable. The yarn, while scrumptious, made for a very heavy sock, more like a boot or bed sock. The pooling did not match up so I just had to go with the flow.
I used Judy's magic CO and Jeny's stretchy bind off. The socks are a bit big for me as I knit a size six. They still look pretty large.
