Lily of the valley
This is what was soaking in the cup yesterday... a Perdita bracelet. This is the Lily of the Valley version. Lily of the valley are one of my favorite flowers. I love the way they smell. I love that they look so delicate, and yet they are poisonous. Not that I'm especially fond of poisonous things, but it's the poisonous-ness that keeps the wildlife from eating them, and therefore keeps them coming back every year.
Anywho, I made this bracelet with DMC pearl cotton yarn and some glass beads with size US1 needles. It didn't take very long... maybe 3 movies worth of knitting. All that's left is to crochet some button holes and attach buttons. And to wait for the weather to be warm enough to wear a short sleeve shirt so I can show off my new bracelet... there is still at least a foot of snow in our yard so it might be a while :/
