I'm also still trucking away at my knitting,it feels like it's going to take forever.
What else have I been doing? Tarnishing my brass jewelry bits ! I've learned alot. Like how I first have to strip off the finish or the blacken it won't work. After it's all nice and blackened ,I then lightly sanded the pieces. They came out awesome !
And a necklace made from newly tarnished bits and bobs.
