Off the cuff...

Recently, I have started, ripped, re-started, ripped, re-re-started, well, you get the idea.  Finishing has been an issue.  Shoot, even starting has been an issue.  

By all rights, I should have a sweet little baby blue sweater finished. Except for the part where I admit to making the "one skein newborn size" in the 3-6 month size and falling victim to the faulty logic of knitting fast before running out of yarn.  Why does that never work?  And just for funsies, let's throw in the "I can't find the ball band to get the lot number" insult to injury.  

The only thing actually finished is this:

I stumbled across this idea last summer while on vacation and love making them.  There is no limit to what can be done.

Garden-wise, I did manage to pick enough green beans for a meal JUST before the plants up and died!  Sounds great, unless you remember how much of a thief Norman is.  That cat is strange.  He likes green beans, both as a toy and a snack.  In order to be sure that there were enough left for an actual meal, I had to hide the bowl (this decision was made after finding several beans through the house).  I was quite proud of myself for outsmarting him.  At first, anyway.  Wednesday night I was cleaning out my knitting bag and pulled out a pattern book currently in use.  A green bean fell out of it.  This morning he was having a field day with a bean.  Threw it away only to find him with another one.  Threw that one away and...darn cat! 

I am pretty sure he has a stash somewhere.



  1. Bah! I HATE it when I run out of yarn. A nice contrasting stripe, perhaps? The good news is that your bracelet's lovely beyond words, and you get fresh green beans for dinner. That's a win, for sure. Happy weekend, missy!

  2. That is so beautiful! I love when people create beaded and wired jewelry. BEAUTIFUL!

  3. Love the bracelet! Surprised you haven't found a way to incorporate green beans... ;)

    Blessings, Debbie

  4. I love the bracelet :-)

    You have a yarn stash, Norman has a green bean stash. Makes sense to me!

  5. That bracelet is amazing!

    Norman sounds quite entertaining. I can only imagine where you'll find green beans turning up now.

  6. That's too bad about the baby sweater , if it's any consolation , you're not alone . I mess up the sizes more often than I'd like to admit .

    The bracelet is amazing !

  7. The bracelet is beautiful. I love the clasp. Poor Norman, he's just trying to get his 5 daily servings of veggies.

  8. Love love love that bracelet! This fall, when you've got a bit of time and if you are willing, I would love for you to teach me how to make those!

  9. That is beautiful! I love making jewellery too :)

  10. Awesome bracelet! If you accomplished nothing else you had a good week with this piece of art.
