For reasons I cannot entirely explain I have completely ignored both pairs of socks currently on needles, and have instead been crocheting necklaces and collars. Well actually there's an August deadline for these, so that's one compelling reason. And they're very quick to start and finish, so that's a second reason.
Shown is Daniela Herbertz's Doodle-Noodle-Necklace, which I'm crocheting in a shell pink Rowan 4 ply cotton. This single ball of cotton was leftover from the very first pair of socks I ever made and seemed like the perfect yarn for this necklace. It's so much nicer to crochet with than yesterday's Diamond Superfine Egyptian cotton - far less splitty.
Tomorrow I plan to crochet a Wild Irish Rose Necklace and finish a beaded necklace that I've started. My plan is to have them all in the mail by early next week. Then maybe I'll get back to socks!
