Saturday Rope Burn

Hello, good morning and happy Saturday! I haven't had any coffee yet this morning so I'm just going to jump right in. I was so inspired from the jute I've been working with that I decided to make a couple of crochet bracelets with it. What can I say? I just couldn't wait for my back ordered neutral to come in the mail. So I made two!!! Then I decided to take a trip to Joann because I remembered seeing some of the natural jute there before and I was really wanting to make another bag. Well, they had the jute but a larger gage than I have been working with. I got it anyway but man, talk about rope burn! I actually ripped of a small chunk of skin from my left forefinger and I'm only about halfway done. It's going to be a really cool bag when it's done but quite laborious in construction! I have to wear a band aide from this point on but sometimes you have to bleed for your art! I think when it's complete, I'm going to make a few little flowers out of the smaller gage jute to adorn it with. I can't wait to see the finished product!!! Alright, for now all I've got to share with you visually are the two bracelets, I think they're pretty cute!

As always, both bracelets are available at my etsy store @ Alright, have a great day and happy happy crafting!!!
