Sorry I didn't say Happy Father's Day on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday; I was a bit busy and only available to complain about swimming. Anyways, what we did was:
1. we went out shopping and driving around at Palo Alto on university avenue
2. we had a delicious home-cooked meal of pulled pork bbq sandwiches
3. gave our daddy our presents.
All in all it was a fun day for me.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!! o(^__^o)
Oh and I made a new icord bracelet. I like to think of it as a fisherman's bracelet because of the natural color and the large knot in the center.
I used some thin string/twine and double pointed needles.
What i did was:
CO 3 sts, leaving a long tail, about 5" to tie the bracelet off with.
K the first row.
Now flip the needle around so the sts are at the bottom.
Then slide the sts up to the top so the working yarn (string, whatever) is at the bottom stitch.
(see? the yarn is coming from the bottom stitch)
Now k the row again, bringing the yarn up from the bottom. Now slide the sts to the other end, flip the needle over, and k the row again.
Repeat till the length around your wrist plus a little more. To bind off, just pull the string through the sts and pull tight. Cut the thread about 5."
In the center of the icord, tie a figure eight knot: Make a loop, twist it once, and pull the end through.
To close the bracelet, tie overhand knots on the ends so they don't unravel and use a fisherman's knot for an adjustable bracelet! Tada! You're all done.
