Vogue Knitting Aklpaca Collection

Look at those marvelous new alpaca patterns just published by Vogue Knitting. I love so much Alpaca that I cannot resist!

I guess I will be able to do just the wrist warmers, before the winter is over, but it's good to know there are some fashionable lovely pattern out there waitingto be made.

Home Made Stitch Markers

Sometimes watching the pics of my friends works-in-progress I see really beautiful and precious stitch markers, so I decided to try doing some myself.

You have to understand that I'm not really good with tools, and I've never made jewelry myself, but I really wanted some beautiful markers. So I looked for a store in Milan specialized in do-it-yourself jewelry, I tried to explain what I wanted to a perplexed clerk and went home.

With a clasp and a wire cutter I tried assembling the markers... And a bit clumsily I did those. What you think? They aren't too bad after all, actually I pretty proud and I find them really pretty ;-)
