I'm actually quite happy with the way they turned out. Smiley Well...the one. I'm making the other one tomorrow night to fill my time lol. The rainbow yarn was an impulse buy that reached out to the old kandi kid in me (teehee) but as I began using it, I found there was a HUGE knot inside of it. Both the husband and I got so frustrated with it, we dubbed the yarn as "Unicorn Shit".  Roll Eyes

Yarn was Red Heart brand in Bikini. CO 26 and used the Dot Stitch (http://knitting.about.com/od/stitchglossary/g/dot_stitch.htm). Made a rectangle that wrapped snuggly around my wrist and bound it off. Then crocheted a border around it and whip stitched the ends together, leaving a hole for the thumb.


I've never been able to do a swap, but I'd LOVE to do one! Especially a personal swap!
I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter, AVPM, AVPS, Glee..eh, let's just say anything geekwise. Wink

I  can see why you fell for the yarn.  It is very pretty.  Sorry about the knot.  I really hate it when that happens.  With me it is usually a reel of sewing thread and generally halfway through some decorative top stitching Tongue.  I like the crochet edging too.  Look forward to seeing the other hand.
