I always been a bit of a coward when it comes to trying new stuff and since I learned how to knit I basically just stuck to the basics - stocking stich and the occasional ribbing. But lately I have been feeling a little more adventurous and inspired by all the beautiful projects here on Crafster I realised that I wanted to try to knit cables and found these instructions for Irish hiking wristwarmers
http://irishhikingknitalong.blogspot.com/2004/12/wrist-warmer-pattern-modifications.html.
And they were not only very easy to knit but i also got a chance to use a ball of yarn that i had bought last summer on a trip to Skye (went to a lovely yarn shop and picked up like 6 different kinds of yarn but only one ball each so can only do small projects (or go there again next summer and buy more - Skye was absolutely lovely....)). I made my wristwarmers shorter though so that i wouldn't run out of yarn.

These are gorgeous, I LOVE the colour! Well done for challenging yourself and making these.  Thanks for the pattern link too, I knew of the scarf, but not these wristwarmers.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

Thanks for all the positive comments! Being on Crafster is like being showered in positivism!

I don't know the name of the yarn - it's 100 % pure Shetland wool and i got it from here http://www.shilasdair-yarns.co.uk/.

The wool comes from these fellas

wow, these are beyond gorgeous.  and they're knit flat!  that means i can make them.  hooray for not owning or knowing how to use double-pointed needles!  Cheesy

i wish i had picked up knitting before i visited ireland.  for some reason yarn seems like it would be way cooler coming from there.  yarn is infinitely less cool when you buy it at wal-mart.




okay, i've exposed enough of my knitting tackiness for one post.  Wink  congrats on your beautiful wrist warmers.
