A friend is knitting a “weather gradient” blanket with a new row every day in different colors for every 10 degrees (going by the high temp). I wanted to do something similar in maille, so I’m doing a scarf!

Just finished making this cute shenanigans choker. Wanted something small, but with a pop of colour, I think it turned out alright.

During the Pandemic, I came close to losing my vision, not permanently, but I need 4 surgeries to fix it. 2 months after the first one, I was able to Maille again! I wanted to celebrate so I created this headpiece.

I just finished my first "Jelly Cube." I have been wanting to make one for awhile, and while visiting my parents this weekend, I was talking to my dad about it. His reply was, "Well, then make one. Just do it." So I did! I didn't have the best size of rings on-hand, but it still turned out pretty well! My boys (ages 6 and 4) have already claimed it and are requesting more. 😁

My newest piece. Double strand box chain in silver and black. I'm still new and learning, so this was a challenge to myself to try a new pattern other than my beloved byzantine. I like this weave in that it assembles very similar to Byz, and is comfortable to work with.

I am going to try another pattern soon. But first I want to order in some new rings on payday.

Terrible mess right now, but with little experience I thought I'd go for a challenge and try moorish rose. I've barely started on it, but I plan on this being part of a christmas gift.

I call this piece "Flowering Stars". I was inspired by one of my favorite lines from J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit that described the handiwork of the Dwarves of Erebor; "On silver necklaces they strung the flowing stars," so I wanted to convey this idea. The necklace is made up of multiple patterns including mobius, byzantine, 2-in-2, and pixie snowflake (by Dawdling Dragons). It is made using round and diamond rolled stainless steel jump-rings and clear Swarovski glass.

My entry will eventually be a seamless over-the-hand cuff in Coyote weave. I learned Coyote after seeing Eric Whitney post a bracelet in the weave, and I looked up a tutorial for it. I made bracelets in large (16swg 3/16") and medium sizes (18 swg 9/64") and wanted a small-sized one (20 swg 3/32"), as well, because I like how thick the sheet is for the ring size, and I enjoy how it flows.

I find Coyote a little tedious to weave at this size and I've had some neck pain if I bend over my work for too long at a time recently, so this one is progressing slowly. I've already experimented with joining it to itself, and while it's a little fiddly due to lack of room, with some patience and fine-tipped pliers, I believe I can join up this size as well.

I'm attaching pictures of the WIP micromaille bracelet as well as the larger finished bracelets.

The black one is a little floppy around the edges due to me leaving out a ring in a misguided attempt to stabilize; I've improved it to the more standard edge since that photo was taken.

My rainbow striped top is probably my most popular and I had recently had a commission that wanted a three color ombre so since I had already made the pattern I decided to do a new pride style <3

I created this pendant I call Mora a week or so ago. I recently lost my best friend and it’s name is inspired by her.
