Beaded Bracelets

I bought some beads at the Melbourne Quilt Show, and I made some bracelets when I was in Melbourne. Then I went to Harmony Beads in North Balywn (opposite Coles on that scary corner with the trams and 5 roads all joining together), to match up smaller beads with the larger beads that I had bought!

These ones were done with a clover "knitting nancy"..I don't know the correct name for it. They were fun to make, and I have bought some more beading wire is different colours to try, and also some different clasps.

Oak Ribbed Socks

A 6 week break in Oz, and I managed to get a few things done (but not too much)
This pair of socks was a simple project that I could work on without needing to look at a pattern very often!

The pattern is by Nancy Bush, from Knitting Vintage Socks Book

knitted on 2.5 mm needles
Yarn Tausendschön Handgefärbte Sockenwolle
