:: realizes she must learn how to knit!! :: darnit, all the really cute stuff is knitted. that is, most of the really cute stuff to wear is knit rather than crochet.

oh, these would be so easy in crochet.  just chain enough to go around your wrist generously, and sc or dc a rectangle as long as your hand.  sew together as per the knitting instructions and there you go.
thanks slystr, for the pattern reminder.  i'll go add it to the instructions.

i'm making something pretty similar right now out of self-striping yarn and size 3 needles... they're turning out awesome!  I knit mine in the round, switched to flat for the thumbhole, and joined the sides back together for the rest.  I just wish i'd used slightly bigger needles, because it's taking rather a long time... well, and i'm making them extra-long Smiley

Neat!  I'm working on something like these right now - I made short little super easy ribbed wristbands and now I'm working on longer forearm warmers.  I was going to bind off for a thumb hole (like make a big buttonhole) but now I'm thinking I like this leaving the hole when you sew.  Thanks!!  xo, girlniteowl

what can I say... i do ridiculous things sometimes  Cheesy  used to make a lot of amulet purses out of those tiiiny seed beads...  the stuff that takes patience always turn out soo well though ^_^

I aso have a scarf made of super-chunky yarn on size 17 needles going at the same time, so I work on that when i'm tired of the teensy needles.

these are awesome!  also cool would be to make the squarish rectangly bits out of a fine wool yarn and then felt them.  i guess you would have to do the seam before you do the felting though, or the seam would look odd.

great job! Grin
