This year I decided to foist my knitting onto my closest friends and make them wristwarmers. 

These are Irish Hiking Wristwarmers.  The pattern is here... I knit these in the round on size 8s with Knitpicks Wool of the Andes.



These are the ubiquitous Knucks from knitty-- knit on size 3 needles with knitpicks merino style.



For these Simple Fingerless Mittens I used knitpicks bare fingering weight yarn and dyed it myself with kool-aid! 



They all really appreciated them... hopefully they get tons of use out of them!

Okay, i have to ask, even though i might get hurt with needles. Is there a way to do this beautiful cable knit with a crochet pattern? by the way, that is some beautiful cable work!

Those are beautiful, I love colors of the one you dyed yourself, it's gorgeous. Cheesy

indobaybiegrrl: The cables are beautiful , as for replicating them in crochet I know there are patterns out there for similar designs but I would suggest using surface crochet to make a cabled look. I think you would get some good results by just googling "crochet cable pattern" or something like that. Good luck.

Again, beautiful colors and your handiwork is so nice, Snarky!

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Beautiful work, snarkymarmoset!  I knit the irish wristwarmers on straight needles and then seamed them.  Would you mind sharing the pattern for knitting these on dpns?  I'm afraid my brain won't let me figure out how to do that!   Wink

Thanks for the compliments you guys!

indobaybiegrrl: I think they could be done in crochet... but I'm not sure how!  I found this tutorial on crochet cables--I think it's the right size.  It's worked over 6 stitches like the knit version is, anyway!

Quad Mom: I just worked 7 rows of Row 2 from the original pattern, then Row 8.  Does that make sense?  I can't tell... I think I also did more repeats than the pattern called for.
