Is anyone reading this blog anymore?

I don't think I have had such a long time between comments as I have lately. Maybe there is no one reading my blog anymore. Do you hate knitting..... Is the blog boring.... wish I knew the answer. It gives me quite a buzz to see the comments and I also try to comment on blogs I like, myself.

My current beading projects are all for exhibitions towards the latter part of the year and the criteria in each case does not allow the work to be seen before the exhibition. Therefore, a lot of my bead work won't be appearing until later on. In the meantime, I am knitting when I get a spare few minutes.

I have adapted the owl pattern and used beads knitted into the pattern for the eyes instead of buttons sewn on after. Since the hat is black, the detail is hard to see. I think it works though. Daughter and mother both have one now and they seem to like them.

That would look lovely with a lighter shade, say a gray with darker beads. Something so you can really see the beads.

Thanks Gypsy Rose and Theresa's Treasures.
Yes, the hat would look better with a paler colour background. I had to make it black as daughter can only wear black to work. I will try another shade soon (when I get over the next couple of weeks of panic over deadlines etc).

Pretty hat! Keep in mind that you may have 100 followers, but only a fraction of them will actually comment, even though they visit faithfully every day (like me!). Don't worry, we are all still here :)
