I LOVE this pattern! These turned out ten times nicer than I thought they would, and the pattern is really well written. I highly recommend it, and this is only my second knitting project ever. It's not too hard for beginners.



I used size 5 Addi Turbos and Berroco Ultra Alpaca in #6284. It's one of the most unusual colors I've ever seen for a yarn, and I loved the end result. The alpaca fibers are in bright blue and yellow, and the wool is a dusky rose color. It makes the yarn sort of glow, strange as it sounds. It takes a couple hours for each wrist warmer.



I'm thinking about giving these to my sister as a Christmas present, and making another pair for myself!

 Shocked they look great!!

i really want to make these for myself (i'm a huge doctor who fan) but was worried since i've only knitted in the round once o.O (i'm more of a crochet kinda gal Lips sealed)

Thanks! I think this is the perfect project for mastering the magic loop method as well. Anything to avoid DPNs!  Cheesy

I've been crocheting for years too, but after lots and LOTS of practice, the knitting is starting to get easier.

Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

I love the color. These too are on my neverending and evergrowing list of to dos. You give me hope, I'm not so great at charts.

I found a pic of her wearing them here ( http://www.film.com/tv/story/doctorwhofinalepacksawallop/11597475/12907438 ) - it was the Doomsday ep! (which is the last episode of season 2 of the new doctor who)

I really like them - and not just for the fangirl aspect! They look very warm.
