It's cold. It's wet. It's the perfect weather for working with wool! I knit these wrist warmers for myself originally, but they fit my eldest daughter better. In fact, the morning after I finished them they had disappeared from my sewing table and were seen on the wrists of a smiling lassy ;)
These were a really easy knit from leftover yarn. The pattern is in "Learn to knit love to knit" by Anna Wilkinson.
Today is also our youngest daughter's 4th birthday and I found myself in a bit of a panic 2 days ago when I realised I didn't have any hand made gifts for her and my sewing machine is still being serviced. It's a bit of a tradition now for me to give at least one Mama made gift.
I went through my wool felt drawer and thankfully found some pieces big enough to make some donuts. Since my eldest daughter started sewing and embroidering, my wool felt stores have been seriously depleted!
What's your favourite flavour, strawberry?
Once again, if you would like a tutorial on how to make these, just let me know. I don't mind doing tutorials and sharing patterns but I mostly only do tutorials nowadays if somebody asks.
