Wow, that looks great, I love the colours! And though I guess it was comparingly simple to do (dc or tc?) it doesn't look like it. I'd like to wear it Wink

I think they look great!  I haven't tried to cable knit, so I think you are amazing!

Thanks Cheesy Btw they aren't knit but crochet.

Hmm... I always thought a wrist warmer was the same as those little armbands joggers wear. I think I'd call these fingerless gloves. Anyway, nice work!

Ah, okay, then I'll change that. I am no native English Speaker, that's why I wasn't sure.
23  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cable Fingerless Gloves on: January 07, 2011 03:13:03 PM
So, some time ago I decided to make myself wristwarmers (or would you say fingerless gloves?  Huh I always mix up stuff like that). I already had some but they were a present by my dad and a little too big ("Really? They didn't fit me..."). At first I wanted to take a pattern from here and had even set my mind on one, but gifts for birthdays and Christmas kept me from doing them for a month or so. Last sunday I decided to finally start them but I wanted to make up my own pattern, which is a first for me. Inspired by the current challenge I didn't go for 'something with holes' but cables.
So, after  I learned how to do them and purchasing some yarn I started them. I didn't want the cables to run lenghtwise as usually but around my arm. So I started but having 5 rather thick cables next to each other looked, well a bit boring and very thick. I then ripped everything apart and altered some of the cables - thin ones without a 'break' of simple fpdc on the outsides, then the normal size without the 'break' and in the middle two normal ones.
They are pretty simple, I didn't even do different lengthes or something but simply sewed them together at the ends. Still, I like them very much, they are nice and warm and cozy, and I would be proud anyway just because it's my first project.
So here they come:

the two of them together:

and me wearing them:

24  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Journal for a month swap GALLERY on: January 03, 2011 09:47:24 AM
Oh gosh, I have been absent so long, there is so much I have to make up for. I am really sorry I was, Smmarrt knows why, but I should have come online to at least say that I was still in... Anyway, my package is sent at last, and I also received mine last Friday - I blame the snow for the long time it took.
I only just looked fleetingly at all the photos, but what i did see looked great.

Now I've seen that Smmarrt had already posted pics of her package but has taken them down again, so you might have seen this before. I do really love what she sent, the journal was very large and I loved the paper. It wasn't the normal white, but rather brownish (but nice!), and she often used prints or a dotted background.

the small crafted item she sent was a necklace made from a stone of domino which I think is a really great idea:

in addition she sent some supplies and other small items, namely: two handmade notebooks, flowers to iron on, buttons, buttons (I don't know the English word, circled pins?), cards and envelopes with a stamped bird/frog, pencils (which I used already), two cards with recipe/crafting tut on the back, an instruction for a simple notebook, small cards with Happy Birthday/I love you written on them and some blank cards to create ATCs - I hope I didn't forget anything, it was so much and so awesome!

and a close up of some:

Thank you so much, Smmarrt!

Hm, this sounds interesting. I might join when I finished my current swap. Well, got some time to think about it... Smiley

Mew, I hate myself because I'll have to send late. Silly thing that several birthdays are allowed in the same month as Christmas :/ I don't really mind any negative feedback (okay, yes I do, it's my first swap and I had planned it all so well...) but I am sorry that Smmarrt will have to receive and send later.
i don't think i really realised wht i was getting myself in for when i signed up for this swap, but i'm REALLY glad i did!
I so agree with that I never thought it would be that much work, much work yes, but not so much... But I still loved it.

Okay, should get crafting now.

Yes, the shipping cost... I don't have a box or anything yet so I can't really find out how much it will cost, but Christmas is there soon so I'll get some money back Smiley And I figure they can't want more than the English post when I stayed there last year, they actually wanted about 40 Pounds for a small parcel. I mean it was heavy, all right, but 40???
Ah well, I am rather worried about finishing on time, I still have to finish some crocheting for my grandma for Sunday and managed to give myself no crafting time tomorrow afternoon... I guess that means no sleep till the post office closes on Saturday...
Anyway, I am getting more and more excited to receive my first swap parcel and to read Smmarrt's journal Cheesy

So, I finally calmed down from some bad events and can post here and really work on the journal. Still have catching up to do and I guess I'll send the last minute... Somehow I'm always finishing things a minute before it's too late :/
Well, and the small is completely finished in my head and almost in reality as well.
The cover is the only thing I haven't started yet but I think I developed my idea far enough to start - I'll keep it simple though, but not as simple as the black it is now ^^
29  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Journal for a month swap SEND OFFS ON Dec 11 on: November 19, 2010 05:57:45 AM
Ah, yes, the crafted item... well, I got something in mind, but it is too small to even be called small ^^ So I guess I have to do something else. I do have an idea, but I am not sure whether it is nice enough. Or, yes, now I know, somehow I got the idea while writing this, I just have to see whether I can realize this fantastic image in my mind Smiley

And for the journal - I still have to think of a nice cover. I hadn't altered it before because I wanted it to go with the content - but now there's so much stuff I am not sure what to put there... Well, I'll just brainstorm a bit more Wink
