so i have a blue bracelet that i try to remember to wear every friday. i got it from my local Canadian Diabetes Assoc. chapter. it is the blue, ACT NOW ON DIABETES bracelets put out by the IDF.
my daughter was using yarn the other day to make a bracelet. using some macrame knots, she came up with a bracelet for hereself which got me to thinking.
using blue yarn and a blue bead, i could create my own blue bracelet! i could wear it every day as a symbol of my diabetes.
so to the internet i went in search of macrame bracelets, to see if i could find one that i liked. there are many different types of knots that can be incorporated into a bracelet. i finally found one that i liked and was fairly easy to create.
next i went to Walmart and bought some blue yarn and beads. i spent about an hour creating my bracelet. it was pretty simple once i got the hang of it!
basically it is just a series of square knots, a bead, and more square knots. it is comfortable to wear and can be slipped off easily.
today i am going to Micheals to get some different thread and smaller beads. perhaps a blue circle like my pin.
then i am going to make another using a different type of knot. we'll see how that turns out!
