Sore fingers

by ysoldateague October 09, 2007


from wrestling with wire

and tightly held double pointed needles.



The leaves are for an autumnal themed sock package.


And the birds are for me, I couldn’t resist them in the bead shop and given my ability to lose them I don’t think I could ever have too many stitch markers. I considered doing a tutorial but it’s both too gloomy outside and I don’t really have enough hands for the pictures to be clear. Google to the rescue though, this is the closest to the method I use.

Mostly today I’ve been working on this little guy.


I wasn’t happy with the first arm (on the left), too low down and lumpily shaped. The right worked out much better, I’m so glad I bothered to re-work it.


Isn’t that better? Not so lopsided and I love that he can sit up by himself.


He’s just eager to stand though!
