2 DOWN, 3 TO GO!

If you recall, I mentioned that I purchased some bracelets, five infact, to make as Christmas presents, well, I have finished two. I had to get Michael this morning to help put the clasps on. It was like the blind leading the blind, neither of us could see properly, we had to wait an hour before our eyes could focus. No, before you even think it, we hadn't been drinking last night.
I am pleased with my efforts, even though I will need to consider carefully who to give them too. I need to think of someone who has a man sized wrist and is happy to wear sparkly jewellery. Ok, so I made them rather on the large size, I won't get too carried away with the knitting for the next three.
Have to say the advice on threading the beads on the wire by my cousin, a textile artist, was very helpful. Thanks Miriam! I was able to thread the beads for bracelet no. 3 in the time it took to watch "The One Show" last night, the other two took three days each. It goes to show you can't thread beads, drink a glass of wine and juggle the tv remote control at the same time.
