So, some time ago I decided to make myself wristwarmers (or would you say fingerless gloves?
I always mix up stuff like that). I already had some but they were a present by my dad and a little too big ("Really? They didn't fit me..."). At first I wanted to take a pattern from here and had even set my mind on one, but gifts for birthdays and Christmas kept me from doing them for a month or so. Last sunday I decided to finally start them but I wanted to make up my own pattern, which is a first for me. Inspired by the current challenge I didn't go for 'something with holes' but cables.
So, after I learned how to do them and purchasing some yarn I started them. I didn't want the cables to run lenghtwise as usually but around my arm. So I started but having 5 rather thick cables next to each other looked, well a bit boring and very thick. I then ripped everything apart and altered some of the cables - thin ones without a 'break' of simple fpdc on the outsides, then the normal size without the 'break' and in the middle two normal ones.
They are pretty simple, I didn't even do different lengthes or something but simply sewed them together at the ends. Still, I like them very much, they are nice and warm and cozy, and I would be proud anyway just because it's my first project.
So here they come:
