1  bath mitt - my first knitting project! in Knitting: Completed Projects by bookgirl on: October 29, 2004 06:57:29 AM
I'm so excited (even if this isn't the most exciting project), and had to share this.  Except for a K1 P1 scarf, this is the first thing I've made that looks like it was supposed to:



It's basically a washcloth mitten made from 100% cotton yarn.  It only took me a few hours -- a fast knitter could do it in no time.

2  Re:I collect beach glass in What the heck can I do with THIS? by bookgirl on: April 23, 2004 07:29:24 AM
I just collected a bunch of sea glass this past weekend and made my first ever bracelet out of it.  It was incredibly easy: less than an hour of fumbling with wire,  and cheap (maybe $1 for materials).  

I just wired each piece of glass with 24 gauge wire (creating loops with the wire as I went to connect each finished piece to the next as I started wiring it) and finished it off with a split ring on each end and a lobster claw clasp.  I'm not totally  satisfied, since my wrapping looks like a third-grader did it and at least one piece needs to be redone, but I think it's okay for a first attempt.  I'd love to be able to make graceful, elegant jewelry, but this will have to do.



The picture isn't so great (the glass is actually a pretty pale green, not grey), my apologies.
