Bracelet picture and Knitting mumblings
As requested, here are the two bracelets. The top one is fused and the bottom one is soldered. One of the cool things about metal is that after heating it it will stretch! The bracelets were a little snug, so I stretched the rings until it was just right. Once the metal is hammered or tumbled, it becomes hard and can't be stretched anymore. With practice, the little globs of metal at the join become less of a problem, or they can be filed down. Or so I'm told. I'm quite happy with the jingly jangly bling as is!
I add a couple of bags to the store. One bento bag in ikat fabric and a purple pansy small project bag. Really they are similar except the bento bag is about 1/2 inch bigger around to fit the two bento containers it comes with.
I found another skein of Lambs Pride but in worsted weight, so I've cast on for some socks. I really can't think of my next big project. I have yarn for February lady, but I'm beginning to have some doubts about how it will fit my apple shape. Then of course there's the basketweave vest, but I can't get excited about basketing for a whole garment.
