I know that 3/4 of my partners have received their bracelets. I hope the 4th one makes it safely.

I'm glad to hear that other people like the bracelet I made for lurv2knit as well. I will be making myself one from that pattern to I liked it that much.

Yay I just finished my last bracelet and will be posting them out today.
The last one isn't perfect, cause that neon was kinda hard for me to work with. But I think it looks great anyways, and do hope it's new owner will think so to.
Now I'm paranoid that I haven't written addresses down properly and that I'm going to send the wrong bracelet's to the wrong people lol.

I have a little problem, I just bought some neon thread from Ebay for one of my bracelets. But it's thicker than the thread I'm using. Arrrgh so this mean's I have to go and find maybe some crochet cotton at the same thickness of the neon thread. Also the neon is a pain in the butt, it's so slippery that the knots slide apart and the darn thing unravels so easily. This is the last bracelet I have to do and it's going to be 'fun' lol. But the neon looks fantastic so I'm going to do my best to stick it out and get it done.

I used the neon yarn that you are talking about too, because it is so thick I separated out 3 of the threads to use instead of the whole thing, it was much easier to work with that way. Hope that helps.

Oh thank you I will have to try that. Did the Knots still look neat though with it being so stringy?

Oh I have made friendship bracelets with metallic thread before. I love it but it turns out very stiff if that's the only kind you use. So can be good for some thing's though.

As for keeping all the threads neat and tidy this is how mine is orginised.



It's all in a little metal "suitcase" so I can hold scissors, a tape measure, my finished bracelets, and all the threads that wont fit into the plastic organiser on the bobbins are warped up in the plastic bag on the left so they wont get all messy.

I have finished one bracelet and almost finished my second, but mine are 8 strands I'm starting to feel they might not be big enough if all you guys are taking so long to make yours... hmmz, but then again I don't think I could finish them in time if I did big ones as I have back issues and it hurts if I sit in the one spot for to long. I'm happy with the way mine look, and would wear them myself (even the one with some pink in it!) so I guess they should be okay right?

Yay for partners. I think I'm going to have lot's of fun making these, specially seeing as one of my partners likes neon colours. That's not something I would ever chose for myself so it will be lots of fun for me to make. I'm heading to spotlight tomorrow to get some new thread and looking for patterns right now.
Thank you to lilbandade for organsing this Cheesy
