Welcome to Elvira Salkeld. She sent in this picture of her bracelet:

She writes, “I learned the very basics of needle tatting through this first piece … and transformed it into a bracelet while I was taking a silver jewelry class. I found out I was not fond of metalsmithing, but yarn has always passionate me.”

Melanie tried out Maltilda (one of the patterns from Monday class):

She wanted to use different colors for each section. Grabbing from her stash of leftovers, Round 1 shuttle 1  White  and shuttle 2 Vineyard variegated

Round 2 shuttle 1 Mocha and shuttle 2 Springtime variegated

Not the most pleasing color combinations, but you can follow the path of the thread well. Incidently, the chains in round 1 ended up a set too long. Correctly following the pattern helps it lay flat.

See you in class!
