Twisted Tubular Herringbone Stitch – How I Took a Suggestion as a Challenge

Twisted Herringbone Woven Bracelet

Part of my daily Auntie’s Beads routine, is to pop on my Facebook and check out what everyone is doing. I also check to see if there are any questions and the like that need my attention. Well I found one on Tuesday…

Amanda, added a photo of a beautiful bracelet made by Elaine. Several comments ensued about the piece and inquiries to the Twisted Tubular Herringbone Stitch. Bam…there it is…Amanda asked me to do a Video on this stitch…okay just one problem…I don’t know this stitch. I replied with a frantic “Someone find me some written instructions!” and I got a couple of links and started searching on my own.

I didn’t have any pressing projects due, so I took this opportunity or “challenge” to learn something new. I stopped and started…ripped out several attempts…updating my progress in one of the longest strings I have had on Facebook! So many suggestions and help from you all! I finally posted that I had an inch and it was twisting.

I completed that bracelet…I was determined. Even picked it back up after getting the kids from school, finished just in time to start dinner…now I am whipped and it bit tense from this, but what a joy it was to do! What a great group of people, talented people that have touched us all in some way or another, all on a Bead Chat for Auntie’s Beads!

Watch for the future Karla Kam on Twisted Tubular Herringbone Bracelet, funny how that bracelet matched what I wore today…I didn’t do it on purpose but I couldn’t wait to take it in the office and show them what I did, but the best part is why I did it, because you asked!

Thank you Bead Chat Beaders, you all make me feel special…

    Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon every day. It will always be helpful to read articles from other writers and use something from other websites.
