King takes a queen

So a month or two ago I posted my completed Tudora, which I made for a Tudors-themed swap. I also made a necklace and I think it came out pretty great. I’m new to jewelry making, so I messed up the clasp a bit, but you’d never notice.

Now I want one for myself 😉

No longer a secret

This year I participated in the Philly Knitters Secret Pal Exchange. It’s a secret swap where Philly Knitters from the LiveJournal group send packages to their “pal” for three months, and then reveal themselves at a party in month 4. The reveal party was this past weekend and it was lots of fun. My lovely giftor was Rosemary aka Cubicalgirl who spoiled me rotten for a few months. Love! I also got to meet someone new as I was the giftor of Angela. Overall, tons of fun.

At the reveal, you give your giftee a final, handmade package. You can see the awesome cabled hat and cat toys that Cubicalgirl gave me on her Ravelry page. I am such a huge fan of cables and the hot pink is so cheery. The cats are definitely enjoying their toys – I’ll need to snap an action shot of Molly with one of the mice…too cute!

I made Angela a sewn tote bag and needle roll (with some added tools and yarn). I’m quite happy with how they came out, even though I’m still a novice sewer. Hey, practice = perfect, right?

Show off: Tudora


Tudora was a fun, quick knit. It only took me one day and the cables kept it from being boring. I love the royalty that purple suggests, combined with the sparkly brooch. This will most likely be for my swap partner in the Tudors swap (minus the brooch – that’s mine!).
