So I got home from Florida yesterday evening and tore into my swap package from Nutella...and just about died from the gorgeousness of it all. 

A knit, lacework, beaded choker in purple.  I am going to be the envy of every other girl in my class when fall semester starts.  "Ooh, lookit me!  My neck is all warm and stylish, and yours is just cold.  *evil cackle and running*"

Ahem. 

Sorry.  Sometimes I get a little carried away.  Here it is, in all its loveliness! 




Close-up. Lookit the pretty beads...


Action shot!  It fits perfectly, and it's soooo beautiful. 

Thank you so much, Nutella, I adore it!  Grin

Thanks! I used Regia Stretch and overdyed the yarn with purple - the variegation was already there, but the yarn was tan and blue, definitely not the colors Altair liked (nor me, the purple is exactly right!)

I put the beads on individually - adding them to each stitch - rather than stringing them on the yarn and pulling up the bead as I needed it. I liked the way they laid on the fabric much better that way.

If I had it to make over again (especially for someone who isn't into super-wide chokers) I'd have only done one center "ribbon" and I would have done it in a yarn that allowed more aggressive blocking, so the zig-zag pattern could show up even more.

I got an awesome package yesterday!

First the choker and earrings


And a cute little patchwork-y bag!


Another thing I would like to say is that this all came in a very nice package, wrapping and everything. While I do consider myself a good crafter one thing I am not good at is presentation. So I hope my partner will forgive me for just sending my choker without the nice presentation.

Clarity you scored!  That is so intricate and well done!  Good job vedrana!  That took some serious percision (not my strongest trait, I'll work on it!).

And the knitted choker that Altair got from Nutella will brong compliments I'm sure.  Can I have one in brown Wink ?

Hoxierice, who swaped with you?  I love the red and black choker, I would so wear that!

I can't wait to rave over mine from nasty_wench!  She's gonna do the picture posting.
