From Susan — Fun to Knit, Fun to Wear

Filed under: Updates — lv2knit @ 10:38 am

Sometimes it is gratifying to just make something, put it on and love it.  This happened to me last weekend at the Birkie.  On Friday evening, I started and finished this cute little bracelet:


DMC Perle Coton #8 and Size 11 Seed Beads

I wish I had better pictures!  The pattern is Lucy Neatby’s Diamond Beaded Bracelet 751 (? – don’t ask me what the “751″ means!).  I need to thank Shelley H. for telling me about this pattern! :)

As my first attempt with the pattern, I wasn’t sure about sizing so I ended up making mine a little too big.  Instead of ripping back, I sewed the thing together.  I slip it over my hand to wear it, which has worked fine thus far.  I will be making more of these and will adjust the size to fit using the button.  I have tons of perle coton and beads to choose from.

What a great intro to teeny beaded knitting – lots of bang for the buck!!

PS to Robin — the Sweater Vase was purchased from Crate and Barrel.  I saw them in Vogue Knitting and the hunt was on!!  Unfortunately, I bought it in early 2012 right after the 2011 holiday season.  I do not believe they are still available. :(

  2. Dang! Maybe we knitters can lobby Crate&Barrel until they order up more of those vases!

  5. No thanks necessary. I love mine. Now I want to make more. They are very quick and easy to make.
