Blondie's birthday present included (in addition to breakfast and a sisters only slumber party) one handknit of her choice.
Since I was already making her a satchel for graduation/going away, and since she is going to college in Florida where it isn't super cold, she decided to go with knitted earrings.
I used the Bijouterie pattern from Knitty. They were surprisingly simple to make. (Although, at first, the wire kept breaking, and it came off the spool in a horrible twisty slinky-like mess.)
I gave them to her at her going away party on Sunday. Here they are in her ears!
(By the way...she made that face on purpose)
