FO: Wrist Warmers

For Christmas last year I made my mum some wrist warmers. cg-32

My mum easily gets cold, especially where she lives now in a huge 24 bedroom villa. So these were the perfect gift for her.

They are a very simple DROPS Design pattern, but with a very pretty finish.

My mum loves them and she tells me that she wears them all the time. Made even more special by the fact that they are a constant reminder that I am thinking of her no matter how far away I am.

FO Friday: Two Sets of Wrist Warmers

Early this year I made two sets of wrist warmers for a good German friend of mine. I used this pattern for the first set.

RS 5

I LOVE this pattern, the intricateness and laciness of it. It was a pleasure to knit it and I think it looks even better finished.

RS 6

My friend picked the colour and I love it, I would actually like a pair for myself in this colour.

RS 7

While the pattern is easy to knit it was a little time consuming, maybe because back when I was knitting them I hadn’t knitted in the round for a little while.

RS 8

My friend loved them, especially the colour and how pretty the lace turned out.

RS 9

The second pair of wrist warmers I knitted for my friend was this pattern.

RS 1

I used DROPS Alpaca for this pair and I simply love the colour.

RS 2

These were a little more delicate and very, very soft. I am not a huge fan of the lace of this pattern, but overall the pattern works really well I think.

RS 3

But I do love the edges, they just add a little extra prettiness.
