Knitty..........



I recently paid to go on an evening class to make a knitted wire bracelet at B'dz the local bead shop.I made the bracelet using a knitting dolly, 28 gauge pink wire, some reclaimed faux pearls, and a green glass bead. The knitted part is a bit wonky, but my technique should improve over time!

Well, I like wonky things, but it doesn't look at all wonky to me! Pearls in silver, very, very nice.

This doesn't look wonky to me either. Wire is notoriously difficult to keep straight and to avoid it twisting but you did a marvellous job. I love the mix of colours you used and the pearls and the glass bead work very well together.
