FOs: "Kaleidoscope" Wire Bracelets

At last, something finished rather than being started, waiting in the wings or stalled.

Rather pleased with how the bracelets have turned out and am reasonably confident that the girls will like them. Even Mum was impressed when she saw them.

Also finished is one of the wedding hats, but can't claim an FO until both items in a project are finished. It'd be like claiming an FO without knitting the bands on a jumper.

Bless you, Taphophile! If you can figure out the pattern, I'm in Canberra today, so let me know if I should come via Starsucks tonight.

Kate - I've posted on your blog and will leave it here, too, because I can't find your email address.

It doesn't say until 12 stitches remain, it means until you reach the same point at which there were 12 stitches on the front, ie, the row before you cast off 6 sts, worked 1 row and then cast off. I figure it to be about 15 rows after you reach 49 stitches on the back.

We're not at Starbucks tonight, but I can meet you and explain if it helps.
