Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

wire knitting

I recently learned how to knit with wire.  It’s pretty easy — basically, you take wire, and you knit with it.  It does take some getting used to since wire behaves so differently from yarn.  You have to think more about the individual stitches. Also, it has wreaked havoc with the skin on my fingers.  I’ve got blisters and callouses and torn cuticles and worse than my usual winter dry peeling skin, but I don’t mind.

I’ve been experimenting with this since I learned — different knitting patterns, different wires, different beads, different forms.  I could do it all day.  Most of my projects are the sort that takes months if not years to do — this might be the first time I’ve fallen in love with something I can do fast.

Here are pictures of some of the bracelets I’ve been working on…[thumb:131:l][thumb:123:l][thumb:122:l][thumb:121:l][thumb:120:l]

Now that I have a little inventory, I think I’ll finally set up an Etsy store.  My name on Etsy is dawnwich if you want to look for me — my name everywhere is dawnwich.
