I wouldn't normally be posting on a Sunday but I had to show you the lovely wristwarmers I made this weekend from Lucy at Attic 24. The wool I got in London last weekend to make flowers and leaves has been used for the wristwarmers instead - much better idea!!!
I do find wristwarmers invaluable when the cold weather arrives, particularly when sat at the computer so this simple pattern from Lucy is ideal.
Mine are made with Debbie Bliss Prima which is a mixture of Merino Wool and Bamboo! they are lovely and soft.
I will definitely be making more of these - I might try vertical stripes for a change to see how that looks, I wish I had bought more of this wool now - I could have made leg warmers, hat and scarf to match! never mind.
I have now started the neat ripple stitch cushion for my daughter and this week I am preparing to do a stint at my local village hall showcasing hobbies and crafts - guess what I am showcasing - CROCHET - so I am trying to put together a short guide to crochet - very simply and I will go armed with my leftover bits of wool and some of my precious hooks and see if I can teach anyone ( I have never taught anyone before and was asked to do this!!) - I would be happy if ONE person finds the joy in it that I have.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!!
