On My Needles
Having finished my Honey Cowl, there is nothing on my needles at the moment.
I will be sure to share my next knitting project with you when I decide what I will make 🙂
If you have a work in progress, I’d love to see a pic.
My eldest has been busy making for the holiday season.
Here is a pic of the latest creations. They are called God’s Eyes.
God’s Eyes hold significance for many different cultures, from all periods of history.
Most associate them with many Mexican communities. They believe that the God’s Eye, (or Ojo de Dios as it’s known in Spanish,) have the power to see and understand things beyond the physical eye.
For some tribes, they offer spiritual guidance and clarity in rituals.
They also make great decorations and are an easy and fun craft for kids.
Jackie from Happy Hooligans has an excellent tutorial.
