Hi! I regularly visit your blog and I always like your ideias. I loved this necklace, but I don't have that book. As I live in Portugal, I doubt I can find it in a bookstore and look what other projects it features. Could you tell me if it is a good purchase and some other fun stuff we can do based on it? I don't want to buy it on amazon just because of one necklace, despite its cuteness :) Thanks!

too soon? Not at all! Time flys!
the neclace is gorgeous, is a lovely present!
I have a craft book from the 70s that is have this idea of covering paper boxs with fabric to make present's cages, in the picture is beautiful, but I didn't try it yet!
I hope you both are doing ok!!

thanks all!

@sabi: i live in italy, so i can't find these things in stores here, either, which is why i'm always ordering from amazon.co.uk. i think the book is pretty interesting and has a lot of good projects, though some use novelty yarns which aren't exactly easy (or cheap) to find. it's also important to look on the publisher's website for pattern corrections (http://www.storey.com/correct_book.php?isbn=9781580176880). there was a small correction to the necklace pattern. go look at the book on amazon and you can do "look inside" to see some of the other projects.

@papgena: the box idea sounds fabulous, too, and very simple to reuse. thanks for sharing!

@maya: i'm also currently working on the melon seed necklaces, which i will post when i'm done! :)

Thank you for the answer and your nice comment on my blog :) I didn't know we could take a peek in books via amazon, but i'll do that.
