Crochetted bangles



Lying around were several plastic bangles in unattractive colors tempting me to do something about them. And I did. Ever since I made this necklace I was itching to crochet around something and even considered doing this (how ingenious is this??) but was afraid I might alarm the neighbours so I dropped the idea.



I like how my bangles turned out and in fact plan to buy some more and crochet them!
While doing that I snapped a few photos planning to do a small how-to but since both Eva and Jacob took the pictures (the latter crying that the older one got all the important tasks) you may imagine how they turned out so I will post it tomorrow. That is if I get to bribe an adult to take the pictures.

Important info: I forgot to mention but the letter has had quite an impact and the sewing machine got fixed that very week. Sewing under way!
Talk to you soon!

I love these! And if your neighbors would be irritated with knitting on their trees, then you should find cooler neighbors! The house next door to me is for sale, and minnesota tree are in great need of warm wear and color! The letter from your sewing machine is too funny! In my former life as a band director, i used to write letters to students from their lonely instruments who just wanted to be taken home at night to make beautiful music...worked really well with 4-5 graders, but my high school students just thought i was a bit odd=)

I think my neighbours would think I'd lost it if I started knitting around trees and things too... Still, it is very lovely.

Your bangles are cool! And you could match them with anything this way!

Oh Jerry, I am glad you did! And I am sure not all of the students thought you are odd!!
