I've finally finished off the bracelets I started on Sunday, there is a braided necklace as well but I forgot to take a photo.

I also thought it would be nice to add some of my beads to them.

Your hands must be sore after all of those and a necklace as well! However, sometimes it is necessary to suffer for art and this is one of those occasions! They are really lovely and I think the viking knit is the perfect vehicle for an extra special bead. Well done.

Oh well done!
It's very satisfying to do, and surprisingly quick once you get going.

Shall we bring our stuff n tools to Flame-Off? We could have a sharing of skills n tips etc
Or if anyone's staying in a local hotel maybe an evening of wine n knitting. We could have a lesson in dropped stitch work. Hic!

I had a little practice tonight but I don't have a drawplate yet. Didn't look too bad tho, managed a bit of double knitting too, not too shabby. I think we do need to dig the flame off thread back up though so we can start arranging stuff Smile
