All For Me

I promised that I would knit a pair of wristwarmers for myself after I knit the three pairs I was gifting to friends... and that promise stuck! These didn't even make the sidebar, since I started them on Sunday night, and finished them last night. I made mine a bit longer on the arm (about 3/4" longer) since I realized (after knitting three pairs) that you have enough Cash Iroha leftover to do that :) So here they are, something for me!

See, don't they fit great?! And they will go so well with my chocolate brown and cream colored jacket.

Pattern: Wrist warmers from Last Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson
Yarn: Noro Cash Iroha in cream
Measurements: About 6.5" around and 7.25" long
Started: January 8, 2006
Finished: January 10, 2006
Other Details: These are all for me this time! I used a US 6, 40" circular needle and did the Magic Loop Method. I also added on about an inch to each one by making the four round repeat, 5 rounds on the arm section.

And what is all the green down below?! Well, you'll have to wait a few more days to see those all finished. Scott is going to be my model this time around :)

Oh my, bring on the GREEN! I love the way that sock looks ;)

Great warmers too, btw. After finishing Kris's cardigan, I can't wait to see others - can't wait to see the one you are making too - any progress shots to share??

Take care~

Beautiful. I love the cream color, but I'd get them soooo dirty. The green sock looks great - what a fun color. Is that an engagement ring? (sorry, I know I'm nosy)

Yummy! I started a pair last January -- more like fingerless gloves (with the fingers separated...) and I got 1.75 of them done and...they are in the UFO pile for when I return from China!!!
Love the yarn you used - they look cozy and comfy!!!
