I have more FO's I'll be posting soon, but here are these for now:

Wristwarmers I made last night, made from a gold colored merino/silk blend (It feels like there's more silk than merino. The price says there's more silk, too Cheesy). I also made a necklace from the leftover yarn, but no pics yet.

A necklace I made for sweets4ever as an engagement gift. Based on the Anthropologie necklace. I've been told there's a pattern in Interweave for the same necklace, but this was all freehanded http://www.roman-a-clef.net/IMG_4826-1.jpg









And the fun little octopus whose pattern is floating around here somewhere. I didn't make her using the pattern, though, as the yarn is fingering weight. She's a gift for lisiepeasie.

like I said, more FOs soon!

Edited to add pattern:

I hate working with patterns and Ive certainly never written one before. I didn't bother with abbreviations or typical pattern writing style, but I did make it a little more detailed than the notes I wrote as I was making them Cheesy If anything doesn't make sense to you, PLEASE let me know! Never done this before and it doesn't help that I'm tired!

I used a medium to bulky weight yarn and a N hook with a slightly loose tension. Using a hook size down will make them a little more fitted, but I suggest crocheting loosely for the starting chain. I only used a larger hook because I didnt have a whole lot of yarn.

FOR BOTH LEFT AND RIGHT WRISTWARMERS:

chain 24 and join to first chain with a slip stitch.

row 1: Chain 3 (acts as first double crochet and chain 1). *skip one stitch. double crochet in next stitch. chain one. Repeat from * 3 more times (4 double crochet stitches and 1 chain). Chain one. Skip next stitch. double crochet in next three stitches. chain one. *skip one stitch, double crochet in next stitch, chain 1. Repeat from * 4 times (5 dc's). Join to 2nd chain in starting chain with a slip stitch.

row 2: Chain 3. *double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. Repeat from * 3 times.  Chain 1. Front post double crochet in next 3 stitches. Chain 1. *Double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. Repeat from *4 times (5 dc's). Join to 2nd chain in starting chain with a slip stitch.

row 3: repeat row 2.

row 4: Chain 3. *double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. Repeat from * 3 times. Chain 1. Skip next stitch. Front post triple crochet in next 2 stitches. Front post triple crochet in the first stitch you skipped (so it crosses over the two other front post triple crochet stitches you made. This will change the order of the stitches and make a cable, so in the next row, be sure to work into the stitches in the correct order!). Chain 1. *Double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. Repeat from * 4 times. Join to 2nd chain in starting chain with a slip stitch.

rows 5 - 7: repeat row 2.

row 8: repeat row 4.

rows 9 - 11: repeat row 2.

row 12: repeat row 4.

rows 13 - 15: repeat row 2.

FOR RIGHT WRISTWARMER:

row 16: Chain 3. *double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. Repeat from * 3 times. Chain 1. Skip next stitch. Front post triple crochet in next 2 stitches. Front post triple crochet in the first stitch you skipped. Chain 1. *double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. Repeat from * 1 more time. Chain 3. Skip next double crochet. Double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. Join to 2nd chain in starting chain with a slip stitch.

row 17: Chain 3. *double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. Repeat from * 3 times.  Chain 1. Front post double crochet in next 3 stitches. Chain 1. *Double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. Repeat from * 1 time. Chain 1, skip first stitch in chain from the previous round, double crochet in next stitch, chain 1. Double crochet in next double crochet from previous round, chain 1. Join to 2nd chain in starting chain with a slip stitch.

rows 18 and 19: repeat row 2.

rows 20 and 21: chain 1, single crochet in each stitch (I single crocheted around the chains between the double crochets rather than through them). Join to first chain with a slip stitch.


FOR LEFT WRISTWARMER:

row 16: Chain 3. Double crochet in next double crochet of previous round. Chain 3. *Double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. repeat from * 1 time. Chain 1. Skip next stitch. Front post triple crochet in next 2 stitches. Front post triple crochet in the first stitch you skipped. Chain 1. *Double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. Repeat from * 4 times.

row 17: Chain 3. Double crochet in next double crochet of previous round. Chain 1, skip first stitch in chain from the previous round, double crochet in next stitch, chain 1. *Double crochet in next double crochet from previous round, chain 1. Repeat from * 1 time. Front post double crochet in next 3 stitches. Chain 1. *Double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. Repeat from *4 times. Join to 2nd chain in starting chain with a slip stitch.

rows 18 and 19: repeat row 2.

rows 20 and 21: chain 1, single crochet in each stitch (I single crocheted around the chains between the double crochets rather than through them). Join to first chain with a slip stitch.

If the thumb hole is too tight, increase the number of chains around the top and distribute them evenly between the double crochets (example: chain 5 instead of 3, and put two on either side of the center double crochet)


I was watching TV when I made these, so somewhere around row 12, I accidentally skipped a stitch, so I essentially decreased 1. So when I got to the thumb part, I chained 5 instead of 3 and added an extra double crochet there to make up for it. This made it more fitted to my arm, too.

thanks!

I basically made up the pattern as I went along, but I wrote most of it down  so I could make two that were the same size (hah! I usually have a problem with that. I always forget what I did). When i get home from work, I'll type it up.
