January silversmithing and Fair Isle knitting

Christmas has passed. I had made a silver pendant with an oak leave motif (our family name) for my daughter wich was much appreciated.

I got a few tumbled stones as Christmas present and it is new to me to work with irregular shapes. It is more difficult than for example cabochon shape and I got some practise in claw setting. The stone here is azurite I also made a pendant with chrysocolla stone and granules.

My latest knitting project: a sweater in Fair Isle style inspired by Alice Starmore. Knitted in finest alpaca yarn that of course is not typical for Fair Isles. My son spent Christmas in Bolivia and brought me two huge balls of non dyed alpaca yarn. Inspiring,  let’s see what will become of that.
