Wrist warmers…again.

Filed under: knitting — Jana @ 6:00 am

I didn’t have anything else to blog about so I figured I would just post the picture of another pair of wrist warmer’s.
wrist warmers 014
I was intending on making these for myself but I messed up on the cable (got lazy and tried to do it from memory…big mistake).  The sad thing was that even though I knew it didn’t look quite right I just kept going and didn’t look up what I was doing wrong until I got a third way into the second wrist warmer. Then it killed me to finish the second one, doing it wrong on purpose, so that it matched the first one. And there was no way I was going to go back and re-do them. It’s not really a mistake that a non-knitter would notice, but enough of a mistake that I am going to auction them off at the next family reunion so I don’t have to look at them knowing the cable  braid is not as distinctive as it should be.  Eventually I am going to knit something for myself that I love and I will actually keep it and use it.  Ah to dream.

  1. To bid or not to bid? Hmmm…You’re right, as a non-knitter, I totally can’t tell there’s a problem. I love the idea of wrist warmers and I like the colors too. They’ll be a hot item!

  2. Yeah, you’re right about the non-knitters, I still think they look great. It looks like you created a new way to do a cable!
