Geeky Tuesday #7 Care of Magical Creatures Charm Bracelet

by TinyOwlKnits

This week I’m gearing up for University term going back! I can’t wait! Books, lectures, reading lists, classes about magical creatures… Ok maybe that last one isn’t true but I think this bracelet was too cute not to have a link in sentence.

This lovely Pattern by Tiny Owl Knits is an intricate piece of craft, incorporating knitting and jewelry craft and more importantly, caring. This project isn’t just a lovely pattern, this is a whole zen ‘life changing’ project created to guide you into doing nice things for others.

The concept is lovely, you earn your charms by doing nice things for others, the environment, animals and the ones you love. Only once completing a task can you knit your charm and add it to your bracelet.

It makes the charm bracelet mean more to you, making lovely memories and being really special.

ThreadCetera will be making one! The lovely Cia Jackson over at Red Head Knits will be my knitting companion on this journey through stitches I have never tried and we will be blogging our progress in pictures! I, for one, am the most excited crafter! See what Cia has to say about it here.

#SupportCrafting Cia Jackson!

I know Cia Jackson from the Glasgow University Gaming Society, of which she is our glorious Lady President. She is one of the best geeks I know, rocking geek chic with lady attitude.

She works at the Yarn Cake in Glasgow where she spends her time smushing yarn, baking lovely cake and knitting lovely things. It’s a great hang out.

She has started to channel this knitting creativity into pattern design via Ravelry and blogging.

Her latest designs are the Graduand Scarf and the Wandering Fae Cowl, both of which I’ve downloaded and can’t wait to get started!

She is inspired by her own university life, times and tends to knit things when she should be studying. Fair enough I suppose.

The Graduand Scarf has been made available for free right now just to get you hooked on her work and the lovely Wandering Faw Cowl is only £1! Stock up! Even better, if you go an visit her face to face in the Yarn Cake and make the relevant yarn purchase for the pattern, the pattern comes free! What better excuse to buy more yarn!

She can be found blogging here!
