Bracelets


Discover. This was on request from mother, she wanted a turquoise one.

I had already knit Explore (in the set I made for Carol) and Dream (for myself) when she pasted this quote and I asked her if she wanted Discover since I liked the coincidence of the words. ”Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the once you did so. So throw off the bowlines. Catch the trade winds in your sail. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
- Mark Twain





Dream was knit in black with dark grey beads (same as on the following red ones).


All of the above made in cotton with glass beads. Most knitted, one tatted.

After that I have also knit Envision in green alpaca, which I knit for myself but gave to a colleague on impulse. Have no photo of that, I am afraid. (I will make another Envision one.) That one I used capital letters on, which worked out nice in the more tightly knit alpaca yarn and with a longer word. Different fonts are easy to work out according to width, luckily :)

I make these on request, with your choice of words/initials/numbers. They are fairly quickly made, so I don't charge as much as I do for a custom tatted bracelet so for those of you that got scared by the prices on those, this might be an alternative! Send me an e-mail if you are interested in either - or something completely different.

  2. Yes I do - informally. I haven't got an account on a cooperative webshop or anything. I might in the future, but for now the interest for anything that I make has been fairly local (ie. Nordic countries) and I have mostly been able to hand deliver.

    If interest grows I might get an etsy account or similar. Though that would also mean I need to stock up on items, I guess. I mostly make to order nowadays.
