The new Knitty is up and with it, my first ever published pattern, the Venezia napkin rings!

There's a story behind the name, and you can read it here. These are really easy to knit. In fact, this is my first time knitting with wire and beads. I am hooked. :)

Someone was asking about making this into a bracelet. I had originally thought to do a bracelet as well, but I don't think the wire would withstand the wear it might get on your arm without crushing and losing its shape. Okay, I'm actually thinking of myself. I tend to...er...be hard on jewelry, so I always try to make my stuff Rosemary-proof. But stand by! I am working on another solution. :)

I was looking at all the patterns in the new knitty... it wasn't until I scrolled through the pattern to the designer bit at the end and saw "Designs By Romi" that I realized "Hey! It's her!!"

They're lovely! I've wanted to try wire knitting for some time now...

Congratulations on your lovely napkin ring pattern. I'm thrilled to find it - something wonderful to do with all those beads I'd been "collecting".

Those are amazing! Also, I didn't realize until I clicked through to your blog that you're the woman I bought a shawl pin from for my mom for Christmas! You're a very talented lady.

I lovelovelovelovelove the napkin rings!!! I've been hooked on knitting w/ wire and beads from the handknit holidays votive sleeves! You're napkin rings are so delicate and gorgeous, and excellent job on the pictures!!! Too bad I won't have time to knit them as presents for the holidays! With a set of crisp linen napkins it would be an awesome present!

I haven't checked out Knitty yet (but will as soon as I finish blogrolling) but Venezia is gorgeous! Just utterly, beautifully creative.
