Up for grabs

I used to do this when I sewed, and I frequently do it when I knit. Make things too big, that is. My perception of myself is of a much larger person than I really am.

And I've done it again, with the bead-knitted bracelet. I've already snipped the threads, and the only way to fix it would be to take it all apart and start over. I'm not really interested in doing that, so I'm putting it up for grabs.

My wrist measures 6.75". If your wrist is 7.75" it will fit you perfectly, and I'm happy to pass it along.

Send an e-mail with 'bracelet' as the subject to shrinkingknitter AT citynet DOT net. Don't send your address. I'll collect e-mails until Friday morning, and will have my husband choose one name randomly. I'll then e-mail that person to ask for a mailing address. And it matters not to me where in the world you live. This is a global giveaway. Heh.

No strings attached! Unless you count the ones holding the bracelet together.

That is very nicely done. Good for us, you couldn't fit it! Are you planning to make another, true to your size?

I am definitely going to make another one to fit me. Probably two. I bought some 6-0 silver-lined clear beads last night ... pretty, but also small ... that I think will make a very dressy piece.
