The debut of Turquoise Waves

Here is my Turquoise Waves! I finished it on Tuesday night, actually I should say Wednesday at 12:07 A.M. I had planned the seaming for Wednesday but couldn't stop the process ...


I wanted to post it soon but I had a problem with downloading the picture from the camera. Had to wait for the owner of the camera ( my 2nd son) to get home from school. To my surprise, he got the problem solved! Yea, my boys are my electronics guru! That's fair since I am their "all kinds" problem solver and special search person (socks, books, wallets, cell phone, ........................) :)

Ah, there is an extra thing in the picture. Did you notice the necklace? Yesterday, I finally decided to go back to my previous hobby of "Beading". I started to have an interest in making jewelry ( some beading and wiring work) at a very early age, when I was still in elementary school. Didn't persuade it anymore. Around 1999, on a trip to Thailand I visited this Jewelry center and saw many beautiful gemstone beads. They were so pretty and I bought a few strands of Tourmaline and Amethist. I was then living in Singapore and found a place that was teaching stringing methods. And wherever I was traveling I only had beads in mind! Just like the yarns nowadays :)

Interesting that when the fashion of semi precious necklaces boomed, I almost did not make it anymore. Maybe it was due to my moving and the lack of a nice place to spread all the material.
I didn't make any jewelry for almost 3 years but that didn't stop me from buying beads! I had in mind that for every knitted garment I would match a necklace. That's why yesterday, I finally decided to get into action.

Digging into my beads collection, I found a perfect faceted blue stone, it's a very deep sky blue color, not sure of the name of the stone ( I always ask for the name when I buy it, but forget with time). It is mixed with some Bali Silver beads and Crystal Quartz. Here is a closer view:


Going back to "Knitting", I am really happy with T. Waves, almost perfect ( had two tiny mistakes, one in each side). I know you can't see it and I don't even remember the exact location . ;)

And yesterday night was my treat time! It was the time to search for the "next project". I took all my Spring/Summer knitting books to my bedroom and gathered some cotton yarns.
Hubby came back late from a business dinner to find our bed full of yarns and knitting books. ha..ha And the silence of the night was only interrupted by the usual TV noise and the flip flop sound of my books... It was really fun, how I love to do this! Although, it's a hard job to decide the pattern and match the appropriate yarn for the right design. And that's why I still haven't decided the yarn or the design yet.....

Wow ... a matching necklace for every knitwear! I don't wear jewelry except my engagement and wedding rings ... but I have to say the necklace matches very well with T. Wave, which of course is very well done. The lace pattern is very beautiful! Congratulations!

Both the waves tank and the necklace are very pretty and goes well together. Have fun deciding on your next project. If you like the black sweater, just forget about the flower and knit the sweater.

Like everyone has said: The necklace looks great with your sweater! It's nice when hobbies complement each other like this, isn't it?

Waves is beautiful. I think waves is best suited pattern to show off varigated yarns, better than the earlier patches. Congratulations!

Mimi said...

It turned to be nicer than I expected, specially being a second attempt. I am happy with T.Waves and now I want to knit more....:)

Your Turquoise Waves is so lovely and nice, and the varigated shade of yarn make it even more beautiful. Great work!

Wonderful! Very ambitious (and cool) to plan a matching necklace for every sweater.
