Wrist Warmers

Hello....... This week I've started a little yarny prep for Autumn, don't panic  I'm sure there is still much more summer to come, it's just with my limited energy it take me a while to finish a project.  

So I decided to make myself some Wrist warmers as I tend to get very cold hands stuck in bed not being able to move about too much.

So I had a hunt about online and found a beautiful pattern for some lacy fingerless gloves 'Here'
over on Henk's blog.  The pattern is free and has been very kindly translated into lots of different languages, so super helpful.  

I also splurged a little and treated myself to some very luxurious yarn it's Orielle by Lousie Harding, and it's baby alpaca, (how cute must they look)  I'm using the white which has a lovely delicate golden sparkle running through, (well you know me and sparkle, it just has to be done)  I have to tell you I was torn colour wise as there was most gorgeous aqua colour that I fell in love with, but I decided to be sensible and go with the white as it matches my winter hat and will go with more of the clothes I own, although, depending on how well this make goes I might not be able to resist making me another pair.

Now I have to tell you that this took a lot of concentration for me, but in no time at all I had the beginnings of my wrist warmers and so far they were looking pretty much like the pattern

Energy levels low and brain fog high, I've been working on them two rows at a time but I'm pretty sure for a fit and healthy crocheter you could probably make a pair in a weekend.

 As for me and my two rows at a time plan well so far so good, I still have to keep checking the pattern to know where I am and can you see as a memory aid I'm using a pretty peg to know what row I'm on (I'd be lost without it)

Oh but I'm loving this yarn it's soooo soft and wonderful to work with, I'm also loving how my wrist warmer are looking so far, aren't they pretty ?

I'll keep you posted as to how I go and hopefully before the Autumn I'll have a Ta-Dah for you, just got to get past the thumb hole first !!!

Happy Crafting

  3. Those look very pretty and cozy -- perfect for winter!

  4. Love your pretty wristwarmers. Though I haavaen't used baby alpaca very often, I really enjoy it when I do. So soft. Hope you're feeling better.

  5. They're going to be lovely, it's a great pattern. It makes sense to start your autumn projects early, that way they are ready when the weather turns cooler. x

  6. So far I have just done two projects with alpaca yarn and it is lovely and soft, so I can imagine that baby alpaca is softer yet. The pattern you are making is very pretty. Thanks for sharing the pattern resource. xx
