You know I love Paris.
I designed my Ooh La Lace Shawlette as a tribute to my favorite icon, the Eiffel Tower. This design was the Twisted Shawlette Club pattern for May 2013, and it’s now available through PDXKnitterati via Ravelry. Ooh la la!
To celebrate Ooh La Lace’s re-launch, I’m offering $1 off the regular price through September 1.
Knit one and dream of Paris with me!
My crochet beaded bracelet class didn’t happen Saturday; not enough people signed up for it. I did these at a party last week with my Crafty Moms group, and we had a great time. I’m guessing that this project may be a better bead store offering than a yarn store offering, and that’s ok.
All dressed up and no place to go? I wrote a pattern for the class, but it’s so simple that I’m going to offer it as a freebie. You can download it here. Victoriana
These bracelets are simple and quick, and they make great gifts. The fun is in choosing just the right beads for your project.
I use pre-threaded silk cord, because it’s easier to thread beads with small holes (no doubling the cord back through a needle), but do as you like. The only stitch used is a crocheted chain stitch; we had several non-crocheters at our gathering and they had no problem learning this simple stitch. Gauge is not an issue; you just go until it’s long enough.
