My husband's Grandmother had some surgery on her hand/wrist.  We visited her, and on her hand she was wearing what looked like an old sock with the toe and heel cut out.  So for Christmas I knit a pair of wristwarmers for her.  I guess I chose pink because my own Grandma loved pink.         



They are adapted from a pattern on DIY network.  I knit them flat because I don't even have dpn's yet.  I put a horseshoe cable down the backs. 
Then Grandma left these in her DIL car right before DIL left for an out-of-state trip, and she was going to have another operation.  She asked for a second pair of wristwarmers.  I guess she really liked them.  These are just 2x2 ribbing, in Lion wool ease.

I'm sure she loved them!  What a sweet gift for her.  I really like the cable, and the colors are so much more fun than old-sock-off-white.  Tongue

I was thinking that or Darling In Laws but, that one didn't make sense with the way the sentence was structured. Thank you so much.

I love these. I was actually just thinking about making some like this. It would be a good way to learn to cable.

She will love these!
