EDIT: Wax seals tutorial and jewelry to go a long with my ragehaus reblog of how to make a sealing wax stamp here. If you know how to make polymer clay molds (here is a good tutorial by stone brash creative) you can easily do these jewelry pieces above. My polymer secret weapon (I use it for so many things) is wax (not the liquid) Rub ‘N Buff here (also at Michaels) - you rub it on with your fingers to highlight just what you want to.
 If you follow me you may know I love wax seals. So when I saw these at Honestly…WTF I somehow felt vindicated. Top Left From  Honestly…WTF here : Pyrrha Talismans are cast from authentic 19th century wax seals and each design has a symbolic meaning taken from family heraldry.
What I’ve Posted Recently:
Top Right: Etsy Vintage Fine Silver Wax Seal Stamp Pendants here.
Bottom Left: Wooden Wax Seal Tutorial here.
Bottom Right: Etsy Usable Honeybee Signet Ring here.

So I went and a little overboard yesterday and indulged in some new fibres. The bumps are 50gm Merino, and had no names, so I named them myself. I’ll post detailed posts as I work with each fibre.

I may have to make a blend, though, because the angora has a very short staple, 1-2 inches, and the bamboo is very slippery.

omg what if
what if I put them on the ends of stuff as like, tassel toppers 
that would be so cuteeeeieoejiofjsaiodjfioasjdfioj

Hjjdfhjdfh Yes. Yes that would be amazing. Oh god I wanna see that so bad. You gotta do it, Kaz, you gotta. You have the justification of having a purpose for them. View Larger

THESE BEADS ARE SO PRETTY I’M JUST
LITERALLY GOING TO DIE
OIJDFIOJDSIOJF
http://www.etsy.com/shop/SpawnOfFlame?ref=seller_info
these are handmade lampwork glass beads and they come in pairs or sets of 6 and they’re probably all too big for my knitting stuff (I love putting glass beads on my knitting) but ODIFJSDIOF I WANT THEM ANYWAY
I’LL
FIND SOMETHING TO DO WITH THEM
>8C

These are gorgeous! I want to get into lampwork, and I just love the matt look etching gives to the glass and jhghjfgh.
For some ideas you could either bracelet them; 
 

Or if you wanted to do something knitty with them you could maybe use them to make stitch markers;

FINALLY done binding off this shawl. I’ll block this tonight but I’m not sure where to do it, we don’t have many carpeted floors and I have no foam block things haha
my my Hexe what a fetching colour for you
for those of you who don’t know, this is how wrinkly and lumpy knitting like this looks like before you soak it and then stretch it (that’s what blocking is). it’ll get bigger and flatter by tomorrow :>
I knit this for my mom. pattern found here http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/agatha-2

Kitty! Cute! Knitting! Shawl!
So relevant to my interests it hurts.
Also yes, blocking fixes everything.
