DeDe's Bracelet

Sometimes it's hard to decide if you really like the final product of something you make. First I used these pink lampwork beads I made in a bracelet that had a lot of silver. The result was very hard and did not sit well on the wrist. Each section looked good but they did not flow. This bacelet is shown in the third photo down. The top two pics show the remake of this into something I like a lot more for these beads. I had to restring these three times before I got the combination I liked and was the right length. In the end I am happy with it!

PinStripeSock

PinStripeSock.jpg

These socks should be very easy and very fast. Cast on 64 stitches of Lorna's Laces Sock in 'pin stripe', Size 1 aluminum double pointed needles. Knit 6 rows, yarn over knit two together for the seventh row, knit 6 more rows and then knit the live stitches onto the cast one edge. I'm planning an hourglass heal. The color looks good although I thought (wanted) the stripes bigger. The wool is very soft and fine.
