1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / How to Knit Doubled Heeled Socks???? on: August 01, 2009 11:15:43 AM
Hi there, I have a family friend who is trying to find a pattern or someone who knows what shes talking about. She had a pattern at one point for theses socks and has since lost it and the older lady who gave her the pattern she is no longer in contact with. If anyone has a pattern or know where there is one for "DOUBLED HEELED KNIT SOCKS" It would be greatly appericated. Thanks!

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Sweet Heart Cuff Bracelet on: February 01, 2006 01:15:37 PM

I did the basic style of a wire cuff bracelet but with two hearts on the back of the cuff at the closure. The wire is 16G, and the beads are all glass with some random glass hearts thrown in for the up coming holiday. Suggestions this is one of my first of the cuff style bracelets i usually do work thats less strutured.

myself I love spicy crab sushi, it can be made with just canned chuck crab meat and spices or even left on its own for a plain variety.

LAugh Alot- The shell in the first one came pre drilled and I just put a split ring through to attach it and the Beach Comber was harder, once i got it drilled, I took a small piece of beading wire, and filled it with beads large enough for all the strands and stuck both ends through a crimp bead together and smashed it down . I know sorta hard to explain its the best i could though
