Hannah asked me to knit a couple of wrist warmers for her friends. She choose You Snag by Ms. Pixie Riot, found on ravelry. She could have easily knit them herself, but sure, why not.
The black ones are for a young man, and I made them like the pattern suggested. The other ones are for a girl. There I dropped stitches only every other column, so they would not be so wide. I used left over yarn from socks I've knit, on 2.75mm needles.
They were going to Australia, and arrived safely, and were received with joy.
Since I was already knitting wrist warmers, I made a pair for her too. She likes stripes, and this was the only self striping yarn I had in stash. I think they are too colorful for her, but I like them. They are too snug on my hands, but should fit hers well.
pattern: Jacoby by Berroco Design Team
yarn: Regia 4-ply, Nation Color # 5399
Great and easy pattern.
It's incredible hard to take pictures just with one hand.
Usually I don't bother with matching stripes, but this time I wanted them to match, and it was kind of fun. I made the thumbs longer than the pattern called for.
