Inspired by the sea

I've been trying to design a mirror for my grandma for weeks now...Finally, inspiration arrived yesterday...
I knew the color scheme had to be blue, my gran favorite color. I also wanted to use some beads. So the inspiration came from the waves....
The dark color is teal. If you look closer there is some stripes of blue and green.
Dimensions: 30 x 20 cm

At the same time I made a little suncatcher for a colleague who loves sailing and is going to retire at the end of the month.

Enjoy your weekend!

Finish at last!
I've started this mirror a few weeks ago and as I was putting the finishing touches, I broke a glass piece! Luckily it was the outside part of the flower so it wasn't too bad to repair.
To consolidate it, I framed it with tinned brass sticks.
Size: 50x50cm.

Now, I am going to wrap it very carefully and my parents will bring it back in France next month (they are making the 1700km journey by car). It is a gift for my godmother.

Cheeky Monkey

This is what fell off my needles lately:
another pair of socks! Cable rib socks from "Favorite Socks: 25 Timeless Designs from Interweave". I've modified the pattern a little: started from the toe and did a short row heel.

For one of my friend's nephew, I've knitted this cheeky jumper (pattern from knitting magazine 050, May 2008):

Now, on my needles, I have another pair of socks (for me, as always) and a lace smoke ring (vent d'est vent d'ouest, free Ravelry download) using the nice yak yarn camoun sent me :o) (and this is for me as well!).
