This one’s for you, Erin! Desperate Housewife Felicity Huffman knits. 🙂
As I watched Natalie Portman accept her Oscar for Best Actress, I couldn’t help but notice how beautiful her earrings were! This is an easy, last minute accessory that any knitter could make for their next special occasion or night out.
A simple pattern for tassels can be found in Last Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson. After you have made two tassels, simply fasten a decorative bead above it and attach an earring post.
It shouldn’t take you more than 30 minutes to complete a pair. 🙂
