Completed Projects: Wrist Warmers
I never really understood wrist warmers. They just leave your fingers out there, all cold. But they have always seemed tantalizingly easy. Except I’m not keen enough on using dpns to really want to take on a whole project that uses them. So I decided to never make wrist warmers.
Then it got very cold. My office is unheated. Normally, I just whine about having cold hands all winter. But then I remembered wrist warmers, which suddenly seemed attractive and not so useless.
Like I said before, I had already cast on and started making just straight wrist warmers, without shaping, when I found Ysolda’s pattern. I love it. I ended up adding another repeat of the “knit to marker, w&t, knit 5 rows” section to make it big enough around – my gauge was different than hers – but I love them.
Yarn: Joann Sensations that I bought on clearance last winter for $1 per skein. woot.
Pattern: Ysolda’s Garter Stitch Mitts.
Time: I knit the second one, start to finish, in under two hours during a very slow craft show on Saturday.
