New Blog

New Blog

Ever since I wrote my first PDF, instructions to create my crochet ring, I got a lot of feedbacks to create my own blog. This was a big surprise for me. Apparently the photos with the explanations were good enough to make a well organized PDF that it seems to some of you, like a good platform to make also a blog of creation

So finally after lots of debates with my inner “me” and my growing belly (I am 8th month pregnant ), I have decided that blog would be the place for me to share my ideas and creations – finished and non finished (which are a lot….). Because “me” is not just “creation” and “inspiration”, I think this would be a bit about me, aka ‘Orit’,
a lot about what I am doing, aka knitting. But this blog would be also about getting up in the morning (very difficult for me with all the extra weight…), or in short – life.

So who am I??? I don’t believe in long introduction so I will start with only a few words. The rest will come as I hope to write more post, hopefully you will like this one.

So this is me:
I look just like my logo (you have to believe me now; I will add a photo so you will able to compare).

I am a mother to 4 years old boy – very energetic and another baby girl in November.

I am crazy about knitting, crochet and textile techniques.

I love to create, I love handmade and I love design – scrapbooking is my new hobby.

With all this passion, I have decided to start my own business and create jewelry which is made entire on knitted wire. This was 6 years ago and since then I also opened my Etsy shop:

After the introduction, I had to decide what this post would be about.
Again this decision was very challenging for me and eventually I got to conclusion that I want to share with you my next necklace. This necklace was not listed on Etsy yet and I didn’t even show it on my stand in the Nahalat Binyamin Fair in Tel Aviv. It is so new that when I wrote this post, it was still on my desk, waiting to be listed.

So this is it, or in fact part of it:

This is an amazing leather which I found and I just couldn’t resist making something which will be combined with knitting. As you can see this piece was cut few an few times before I could decide on the shape.

So after some cutting and piercing, I got this shape:

And this is it in full size:

I would love to read your opinion on the result, so if you like you can leave a comment.

Now I have to think about my next post and if you like to read it, you can subscribe (at the bottom of this page) to my blog  and receive an email notification when a new post is made.

Thank you for reading this,

Orit
