Just a few years behind everyone else, I've finally made some Dashing and Voodoo wristwarmers

Dashing were made for me, though I might frog the right-hand one, cause I stupidly managed to do the bit above the thumb 5 rows shorter and I think it'll bother me if I dont  Angry  But I still love them anyway!  They only took a few days, and I knitted them backwards, starting from the fingers down, cause I didn't know if I'd have enough wool!

And Voodoo were made for Flikk's birthday tomorrow (he's just opened them, so I can post now!)

I mainly followed the pattern, but added some dec/inc around the wrist so it was more snug, and did 11 stitches for the thumb hole, rather than the 6 it said!

A fuzzy pic to show the decreases/increases

For both I used an aran weight wool, bought off ebay, dyed by the seller.

Very pretty! I adore the colors of the second pair, that yarn is gorgeous. Those will be great this winter!

Your mods to Voodoo were a great idea. It seems like they will stay pretty snug now. Good job!

I think I probably will frog, but I'll re-knit quite quickly cause it's getting colder here now!

Gorgeous wrist warmers. I really love the colors too.
