Israeli style bracelet

I made this bracelet in my bead class from the second session. Homework for the next one is gorgeous too. Meanwhile I am doing an entrelac scarf and I think it is going to become a vest. Also knitting a shawl from the Oberle shawl book with Brunswick Pomfret and crocheting a shawl or maybe it will become a summer top. I just took the idea from "Cool crochet" by Leapman. This book is really nice.

McCalls capes

Aren't these great? I want to make the one on the left but I'm running out of winter time. Both appeared in the old McCalls. Fall-Winter 71/2 for the one on the left and spring/summer 1975 for the one with the bobbles. I think a worsted wt yarn will work on both of them.
