My good friend Laura Nelkin has created a wonderful pattern collection featuring knitted, beaded jewelry. When you subscribe to the Adorn Anew collection you will receive one new pattern at the beginning of each month from May thru December 2012. Since it's already August, you will get the first four beautiful patterns when you purchase the collection. I made one of them, the Mudra Cuff. Laura was kind enough to give me a kit complete with yarn, beads, and clasp when I saw her at TNNA in June. (My not-so-great photo is below, followed my Laura's much better photo, showing three cuffs worn together.)
The sweet Mudra Cuff took almost no time at all to knit. Laura's instructions are clear and easy to follow. Being the sort of knitter who's always storing wee bits of leftover yarn, one of my favorite things about these patterns is that they are a great way to use up those bits. Another great thing about Adorn Anew - imagine the fun you'll have combining yarn and beads. Now I'm eyeing the gorgeous August selection, Trio. Hmm, wonder what pretty little ball of yarn I'll use for this one. . .
Laura has kindly offered to send one lucky winner a kit for the Mudra Cuff in the color of their choice. To enter to win the cuff comment on this post by midnight (NYC time) on Monday, August 27th. (Eep! My girls will be off to college by then.) I'll use a random number generator to select the winner.
