beach bracelet

broomstick lace crochet cuff

We are headed to the beach tomorrow: the real beach, the ocean beach, the hawaiian beach. I was planning on making this rope bracelet for the trip, but then I spotted this broomstick lace cuff on pintrest and changed my plans.  Kirsty made a nice little tutorial for this beautiful cuff. Mine is pretty sloppy (late night crocheting) and made out of string, but hers looks lovely in a warm gray yarn.

The blog will go on while I’m gone!  I’ve got some stellar guest bloggers lined up for you and I can’t wait for you to meet them all. They will be writting little bits about winter, because I do love winter and will miss it. The wisconsin winter will still be here when I get back, but it probably won’t recognize me with a tan.

    Cute bracelet. My envy is surfacing as I have friends celebrating a 40th birthday in Costa Rica right now. Of course, where I live there is no bad weather to escape.

    Hey Meg, groovy bracelet. have a safe and sun-filled glorious journey to the Islands!! please send some sun vibes to us here in chilly Alaska!!

  14. Wow! I love that bracelet. It reminds me of the classic sailor bracelet my grandma always wore, but with a modern and more feminine twist. Have a marvelous vacation. I’m jealous of both your sunny adventure and the wintry wonderland you’ll come home too. Out here in the Northwest there’s just a whole lot of gray.

    Bon Voyage! Don’t get too tan…it makes the rest of us look extra scary-pale!

  16. Kimberly says:

    Love! I’ve had both of those bracelets book marked for some time now. Your self-proclaimed sloppy version is easy and breezy, just like the beach. Happy Adventuring!

    Lovely bracelet!! Happy vacation!

  18. Jesse says:

    Ooh, I’ve been wanting to make one of those! Have a lovely holiday!

    love the way your cuff looks–a little lacey but also organic. If you wear it the whole vacation it should be a lovely natural gray-white when you return–which I actually love about this color of yarn/string. And I don’t even want to hear about your tan. Can you hear my jealousy all the way from Minnesota? Have a fantastic time, Meg.

  20. It’s gorgeous!

    Enjoy your trip. I’m looking forward to the winter posts – it’s been far too warm and sunny around here.

    green with envy!

  22. mixette says:

    Have a great trip! Can’t wait to hear all about it…and see your lacy bracelet tan.
