Lolita Wristlets & Another Crafts

I've caught the crafty bug :)


So I was disappointed when I found out my knitted bows weren't original, but I'm sure that my knitted wristlets are! They took around an hour or 2 to make, the only probelm is someone else has to help me put them on!


I was up until late knitting one night.I found a new knitting place. It's great and peaceful :)

I've started knitting a sailor collar aswell. I'm using Penelope Teapot's tutorial and it's quite great and easy.

It's spent around a day on it. It's helping me improve my patience alot. I've learnt how to colour change properly aswell! The reason I gave up on knitting whren I was younger was because I had a short attention span and still do! What tests your patience? young kids and teaching other people do....

People tend to test my patience! Those rocks don't look very comfy for sitting for long periods of time.

your knitting spot looks so peaceful! i want to go there too! haha! i can't knit so i'm really oogling at the pictures you posted now, :D

i can't knit! it's not because of patience but i really don't have any talent for it haha! ^-^ anyway, it's great that you are learning to be more patient. it will help you later on in life. :D

I love crafting :3
I'm not so good at crocheting and knitting though :p
Lately I've been crafting with clay a bit :3
ah.. your bows were awesome anyway...
I guess when it comes to crafting, I am very patient because I enjoy it :3
It actually helps relax me :3
But I haven't been able to do much crafting lately :( too busy :( boo!

I love your new knitting place <3
Looks so nice :3

Maria May said...

You are so talented. Everything that takes more than an hour pretty much ticks my patients ><

Pop Champagne said...

pretty knitted stuff, oh well a lot of stuff these days are just variants of each other, nothing is truly original anymore, the bottom line is you still make amazing and cute stuff and that's all it matters :D

Tara said...

Cat said...

A beautiful knitting hangout. I would like to create sew or knit items, but I just dont have the discipline or patience sadly.

Piperita Patty said...

I'm absolutely in love with your sailor collar *________*
I want to do one too, but I'm too scared of moths to use whool, so I'm thinking of making one with fabric and ribbons.
You're so inspiring!!!

Alexandriaweb said...

Oh I hope I don't upset you but my grandma used to make knitted cuffs for theatre dancers.
Yours are a much prettier colour though :)
That sailor collar is fabulous!

Piperita Patty said...

You're right...I'm simply too lazy and inattentive to knit ^^'

O_o
I don't think you need to worry about gassing yourself if you're gona bake fimo clay :3
its not as bad as you think :3
But if you don't want to bake the clay, there are air dry clays too :3
Those just take longer to dry though but I don't mind it. :P

You're so crafty, I don't think anything horrible can go wrong with you :p
