Grandma's Crochet and a Bracelet

Mom recently found my grandmother's crochet from her piles. We've been talking about those these past months and finally, I get to keep them. Grandma made the top and skirt for me when I was a baby. I wish to be as good as her someday.

And here's my latest crochet project: a bracelet using broomstick (jiffy) lace and double crochet. For the "broomstick," I used a larger than usual colored pencil. I tried using a marking (pentel) pen, but the circles were a bit large for a Cannon thread. Next time, I'll be trying this stitch out with a larger yarn, marking pen and single crochet.

I used the back side because it has more texture. The right side is smoother.
