I got the 2nd wristlet knit up! Now to join the ends. This pattern calls for the 3-needle bind-off, which I used on the 1st one. But I have opted to join the 2nd with the kitchener stitch. I am interested in the difference in the look of it and plan to use the pair as a demo for other knitters.
So, two lessons were learned. Pick out contrasting beads and think ahead as to which seam would look the best.
