i finally got my book - it is so beautiful - i would make everything in it if i had had a million dollars and no work or kids...i live out of the states (as you can probably tell from the times of my posts) and had to wait till someone was coming for a visit to bring it for me! (i also got weekend knitting which i love!)
but just like pretendingsanity, i also made the ribbed or 'men's' wrist warmers...
i made them a little longer so they are more like arm warmers.
by the way, illana, your sweater is amazing! i'm so impressed. it looks great on you.
here's one arm being warmed while it wrestles the DPNs to make the other:
and in this one you can see the extended length:
i made them in a really soft merino wool - but i'll admit that i think the color choice was not such a good one. they are SLIGHTLY flesh-toned and end up looking funny...but i am thinking that i will get used to it...
thanks again, gertie, for the book recommendation!
