11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Knitted Wire and Bead Bracelet on: February 07, 2008 04:32:06 PM
I made this a while back, but I just got around to putting some clasps on this afternoon. I'm not a jewelry-maker, and this idea originally started out to be a napkin ring. However, when I rolled the first one around a dowel, it got smushed. It looked better flat, so my bracelet was born. (If you jewelry experts have a better idea on how to clasp this, I'm all ears.)

Next time, I'd do fewer rows, because the wire stretches and the clasps add a half inch. I would like it to be more like a tight cuff. All in all, it's a quick project, and it dresses up a plain outfit.

Hope you like it.

12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Cable Socks on: January 10, 2008 12:29:08 PM
From Sensational Kintted Socks by Charlene Schurch. Done in Rio de la Plata merino sock yarn purchased at my LYS.
This is my third pair of socks, and the first in which I ventured off a straight stockinette. The book had DPN instructions and for two circs. I prefer the magic loop, which I recently learned. Adjusting the pattern was pretty intuitive.

They are soft and warm; I do love the yarn. Here are the photos, though I'd submit that my calves aren't as big as they look in the photo. Hope you like them.

13  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Goofy Candy Cane Rudolphs on: December 13, 2007 06:25:02 PM
It's a snowy night in New England, so my DD and I indulged in our annual making of Rudolph candy canes. They are simple, inexpensive, and good nut-free holiday wishes for her classmates, Brownie troop, etc. The antlers can be any style you wish. Because she is 8, they are all supposed to be hearts. However, I submit the individual one with some truer antlers.

Happy Holidays!
