I did my first official commission in June but I then went to a summer arts conservatory where I had no time to post pictures so here we go.

This wouldn't have been tough to make six beaded cuffs had she not ordered them two weeks prior to needing them for a family reunion.  Note to self: next time, allow a week per bracelet.  Things get in the way, portfolios for theater need assembling and knitting is usually lost in the mix until the car ride where, for eight hours, I sat knitting fiercely in the passenger's seat.  I ended up adjusting the pattern on the last two to make them more narrow and save myself time.  I sorta liked them in the end the most.

Enough chatter.  PICS!

the group shot sitting on and around a frisbee disk the instant I arrived at the dorm and had to hand the cuffs off to my dad.

The bracelets, in order of their completion.

kiwi flavored

this one I call eggplant and asparagus

a nice oranges and creme

"water" melon (get it? the beads are blue!  Sorry, bad puns...)

cotton candy

why did I start naming them like food?  I don't know.

Let me know what you think!

These are so pretty! I love the Eggplant and Asparagus one the best. They would be perfect to wear every day, I think. What kind of yarn?

It originated from a pattern I found on knitty, but I've altered it so much that at this point I just make stuff up as I go along.

Thanks so much, everyone. 

The asparagus and eggplant one was hard to let go.  I bought enough to make my own Cheesy

I can write up a few patterns or tips if anyone really wants some.
