In the rhythm of the needles

there is music for the soul.

noro wool finished !

Remember the 2 skeins noro wool I bought in Ghent ?  Well, I have made a really warm set with it.
They became a shawl and wristwarmers.  I wanted the stripes to change every other row, and therefore I knitted with the 2 skeins, alternating colours every 2 rows.  It is just plain and easy knitting.  To finish it, I crocheted a trimming in a mohair greyish brown that goes well with the colour scheme.  

the brooches I made of old buttons.

the wristwarmers are making it an 'ensemble'

the many colours go with almost all my outfits

With the remaining wool I knitted I-cord (I used my magic loom, it took me only a couple of hours to make)
and joined the long ribbon together.  Then I twisted it into a necklace.  It keeps me real warm, and the many colours go with most of my outfits.

This idea came from my sister. 

you can twist it any way you like

Then there was still some wool remaining, and I thought about using it up.  When I saw 2 empty little glass bottles I had a go at crocheting and gave them a little cover.  turned out fine, and just enough wool for the 2.  I am now the proud possesor of 2 original vases. 

originally just bottles of cream, they have upgraded to unique vases.
