I'm such a slacker...

I know, I'm such a slacker.  I have been doing all kinds of things this month, but I haven't been taking pictures.  Just now I did manage to pick my lazy self up and take a picture of the bracelets I made this month.



The other thing I have been doing is re-learning to knit.  I knitted a scarf about three years ago, shucks, you might remember seeing it here, but my skill level is beginner to be sure.  I am persevering, and my home is now being overrun by squares and rectangles.  Hubby is being very patient, especially when I grumble when I drop a stitch, or even worse, when the entire row of stitches came off.  Anyway, the main reason I want to learn to knit is to make, what else?  Bracelets.  Ones like these...



I figure it won't take me too long.  I saw some similar in a Vogue knitting magazine in 2008, and I will be using that as a pattern.  Wish me luck on that.  In the meantime, I'm practicing on another scarf.  In cool colors this time, aqua and a heathery lavender variegated.  Should be pretty.

Well that's it for awhile.  Hope everyone is enjoying the beginnings of fall.  Take care and have a great weekend.  We'll talk soon.

As for the knitted ones, I would never have thought about that! Absolutely never! Did think of covering wooden beads with thread though....

Keep me posted...no pun intended (really)

I've taken up my knitting again. I made a hat for my daughter. Ha! I had to restart 6 times before finally getting my grove back! Sometimes I was unraveling inches of work. :(
The clay bracelets are wonderful! And the knit bracelets are lovely!

I never did learn how to knit-can barely crochet-only know one stitch-double crochet. I just don't have the patience! My grandmother used to make the most elaborate things. I don't know how she had the patience with 8 kids!
