Peanut Bracelets

No, not bracelets made from peanuts. Bracelets made for peanuts! The peanuts (otherwise known as my yet-to-be-born twin nieces) are 36 weeks old now, each weighing in at around 5 lbs each. Needless to say, LA is just about (= more than) ready for them to be born. But for now, we wait. Oh, the anticipation!

In the meantime, I decided to make bracelets for them, since LA has mentioned the need for a way to keep track of them. Since, identical twin girls...I mean, I'm sure it will become obvious eventually, but it may be a little tough at first. I went with just their first initials, since these are tiny wrists we're talking about here, and even though their names are comprised of only 4 letters each, that would have taken up half the circumference of the bracelet! It's been a while since I've made any jewelry, but I think they came out pretty cute.

On the knitting front, Carmelita and I got into a bit of a squabble the other night. I think she was miffed that I wouldn't climb into the loft with her the other day, so she decided to rebel and get all jacked up on me. Spiteful! Thankfully, after a few serious heart-to-hearts over the past few nights, we are back on track. I'm so relieved!

So cute! Now, once LA gets the hang of who is who, you should mess with her and switch the bracelets. Wouldn't that be fun? No? Am I still allowed to meet the peanuts?

Yeah, it's sad when it takes several heart-to-hearts to get your knitting to behave. Such a DIVA, that Carmelita.

At least the bracelets turned out well. Very cute. Good idea for keep track of identical twins.
