You're allowed to laugh at today's creation. I certainly am.
I dug out my eighties knitting Nancy and gave it a workout. Something tells me that back then I either had more time, a lot of patience or more skills. Maybe it was a combination of all three. Anyway I spent about 2 hours and got a callous on one finger and all I ended up with was these three little bits of rope.
The first red one was wool, then I thought a finer one might be nice so I used some embroidery thread. Then I made an earring using the top of an old broken one. I don't think I'll be setting up and etsy shop in the near future to sell these. Oh well, at least I gave it a go. Nancy is going back to the box where she came from, unless my daughter wants to give it a try in a couple of years.
