Work in Progress: Colorblocked Collar

I’m feeling rather sad and annoyed with how my bead tray is looking this week. I had been hoping to share a look at a nearly finished collar, or perhaps an entirely new project altogether. Unfortunately, right after sitting down to work out a pattern for this piece, I came down with a wicked cold, and haven’t been able to add a stitch.

I’m not quite happy with the pattern that I started with, and I’ll be starting over at least once more. The idea for the palette came all of a sudden - one of those flashes of inspiration that must be jotted down immediately. Luckily, I had all the colors that I needed, so there was no delay in starting. Now I just have to get well enough to finish.

What are you working on this week?

  3. Multiple copies of Jill Wiseman's Festival of Lights bangle, only making it a bracelet with a clasp. Pretty, fun, and addictive.
