The Glimmer Twins
I just finished these (Un)matched beaded wristlets, and I can decide whether to give them away as a Christmas gift yet. The pattern is One of Susanna's, the yarn is a fingering weight merino. I believe that Gretel (a/k/a "Little Stinky") chewed up the label, and I can't remember the name of the yarn. The needles were small US#1 circulars (though they are knit flat), with extremely pointy tips. I started these as a gift, and they may yet end up a gift, but there is a high probability that I will wear them to see El Vez tomorrow--you can't tell me that they aren't a perfect fit for a trip to see the Mexican Elvis. It took a long, long time to string all the beads for these wristlets, and the beading needle took a toll on my hands. However, the knitting itself was straightforward, and I learned the three needle bind off, and I'll probably end up making another pair--this time, really for myself!
