For Christmas last year I made my mum some wrist warmers.
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.
Pattern: Tourmaline by DROPS Design.
Yarn: DROPS Cotton Merino in turquoise.
Needle size: 4mm
Knitting time: 2nd-3rd December 2015.
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.
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.
My friend picked the colour and I love it, I would actually like a pair for myself in this colour.
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.
My friend loved them, especially the colour and how pretty the lace turned out.
The second pair of wrist warmers I knitted for my friend was this pattern.
I used DROPS Alpaca for this pair and I simply love the colour.
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.
But I do love the edges, they just add a little extra prettiness.
