As soon as I opened up the window to create a new post, my brain automatically started screaming that I have more to post than what I'm about to, but I can't think of what it is... Oh well. I'm sure it'll come to me later... (Maybe. LOL).
So, here's the long, boring story: I wore the red and black bracelet that I made on Sunday (and it held up!!!). My cousin saw it and asked me to make one for her. I had some tatting stuff with me so, while I didn't plan to make a whole bracelet sitting in the middle of a park, I figured I'd just show her how it's done. Of course, I go to show her off the ball and the thread knots. So, I cut it and decided I'd just make up a quick ring to show off, LOL. Well, we left before I finished, but I came home, finished half of that ring and decided I wanted to make another one. (Oh! It's the Remembrance Ring from... Yarnplayer? I'll check in a bit).
So, I did... It's done in Lizbeth Size 20, Color 149, Peacock Blues with two colors of size 11 Czech glass seed beads and one li'l Hematite star (I love hematite!). I went with the nine ring that the pattern suggestions ...definitely much too big for my hands... :-/
Yesterday, I sat down and started tatting with the same thread, the same beads (plus one somewhat larger hematite star) and went with the same stitch count... This is what happened:
A bracelet for Kathy! :-) It measures 7 1/2" with Lobster claw clasp included in that. Scans don't show the beauty of hematite, so I had to whip out my phone and take more pictures... I still need to hide the ends, but it's done! :-D
Well, hope all is well in your neck of the woods!
