Beaded Votive Sleeve Number 2

I did some alterations to the second one.
It looks pretty much the same, only it was much easier to knit!



My thumb is not happy, though - knitting wire is not as easy as you would imagine!

Excellent. I only used wire ones for a bracelet now I wished i done a votive holder...so i may just have to have a go at one...but not until after Christmas. You should deffinetly make loads:)
Oh yeah and I am going to add you to my Blogroll now..before I forget again!!

Ouch, this looks really painful - but the result is so gorgeous, it looks absolutely lovely! Fantastic work!

Carla said...

Silvia, I did a bracelet that was quite similar, and it also looks really nice. You should try these votive sleeves, they look lovely.
Thank you Angie! I love these things too!! I hope the recipients will appreciate them...
thanks everybody for your kind words!
