Beads and Mermaids

I've found a new obsession with beaded knitting. As if knitting wasn't magic enough, add some sparkly beads in and *swish and flick*! pure magic. I have a few different knitting projects going at the moment, one is a super squishy cardigan which is too hard to show right now because it's in the process of getting pockets and it's a rather jumbled mess of different colored yarns and needles. Another project is top secret because it's going to be a new pattern, hopefully soon!

But what I can show you...I am working on a shawl from The Unofficial Harry Potter Knits called Mermaid's Song. It is so pretty! I'm loving it. I'm using mint pearl beads for the beaded parts. It's really fun! And beads...obsessed.

There are so many patterns in this magazine I can't wait to make! I already have yarn for Ginny's Cardigan and Hermione's Time-Turner Mitts! Must knit faster!!

Once Upon a Time Knitting Pattern Reference List

Once Upon a Time is one of my favorite TV shows and I'm in love with all the beautiful knitted accessories and sweaters the characters wear. I decided to start a reference list here for knitting patterns inspired by the show! I will add to it over time as I find more patterns.

Although I continually talk about movie costumes on this blog, I am not a movie reviewer. Not all the films I discuss are recommended and I do not choose to review weather they are appropriate or not for the simple fact that every person's standards are different. Something that is fine for me may be offensive to some one else and visa versa. If you would like to look into the appropriateness of a title, I recommend I have not seen all the movies I discuss, and am simply interested in the art of clothes in film. I will leave you to decide for yourself if you will watch the movie or not.
