An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

In spite of all my resolutions about not adding to my stash, I bought some beads in town on Wednesday. Well, I must make bracelets for my granddaughters, must I not?
This one is pretty, but the pattern is rather too subtle ( it shows up better in the photo than it does in real life). How about using red beads? When I looked more carefully, I found that the red beads were a bit bigger than the other beads. I decided to try using them anyway. If it didn't work, crochet is easily unraveled!
So, the beads don't all have to be exactly the same size for beaded crochet. The bigger beads stand out, so they have to be used in the context of the pattern. The bracelet is also stiffer than the top one, so it doesn't form such a neat circle.
