« A Long-Sleeved Juliet? | Main | Our Night Blooming Cereus...Bloomed! »

September 24, 2007



Hmmm I was thinking of doubling up some brownsheep cotton fleece for Juilet...hmmm lol your beading looks great! I have a great appreciation for those with enough patience to bead! LOL my sister in law tried to teach me...umm not good!!!


The Blue Moon set is gorgeous! Nice work :)


I'm interested in your opinion of Crocheted Shawls on the Go. It's one of the books I have tagged on Amazon as a future purchase.

The necklaces look gorgeous!


Oooh, I love your necklaces. What did you string the faux lapis on? I thought it was leather cording but it looks too thin and even. Did you get it from Fire Mountain? The shell necklace is gorgeous too. It's so hard to pick out beads on line--it always seems like a crap shoot in terms of size and color. I'm thinking I may have to do some jewelry for Christmas gifts--your projects are so inspiring.

BTW, re:Juliet, I used Elann Highland Wool Chunky. I posted a picture on the chat center sidebar. I don't know if you ever check in over there.



I love your 'moony' necklace. You'll inspire me to do more beading yet. I'm totally impressed by your dedication to the Juliet project. However, I think you've made the right decision. The really nice garter stitch sweaters (like the Einsten Coat) I've seen have a lot of drape.


I'm going to try Juliet with a light worsted that I got on sale at my LYS last weekend.

Your necklaces are beautiful!


That's too bad that CE doubled didn't work for you. It's working well for me. I could see how the Patagonia cotton might not work with the thick/thin nature of the yarn.

Your jewelry is beautiful.

Blue Moons is pretty!


bummer about Juliet! I was really curious to see how the longer sleeves look. I love the design but I just can't see myself in something so cute and impractical (in the SF Bay Area) as a sleeveless sweater that's not even a vest. ~lulu


Thanks for the info on the book. Not a huge fan of motifs here either, but I'm still intrigued by some of the shawls I've seen from the book.


I had the same problem with my Juliet and frogged her to put on hold. It just seemed too bulky and when I tried it on I looked like a linebacker! Now I'm working on Cherie Amour and am much happier!
