after seeing friendship bracelets on a number of style photo blogs and fashion sites, I decided to pick up some embroidery thread and do something that I haven't done since I went to Camp Downer (good name, right?) in 6th grade.

while I vaguely remembered how to do a really simple pattern, I googled instructions and found this site. since I knew I was out of practice, I made the candy stripe bracelet, which the site declared 'the easiest pattern of all.' I messed up a few times while I was getting the hang of tying the knots, but I think that they just add character to the finished product.
