Mrs. Beeton has arrived
As you read this, there are three (nearly four) babies out there who are missing their baby gifts. Why? Because I just had to make these wrist warmers. Selfish me. And I finished them just in time for our 52 degree weather today. Good thing I hurried!
Pattern: Mrs. Beeton designed by Brenda Dayne (of Cast-on.com) and available at Knitty.com
Yarn: RY Cashsoft 4 Ply and Rowan Kidsilk Haze
Can you see all the little beads at the edge of the lower ruffle? I just love the feminine look of these wristwarmers, and they are so much better than the old mutilated socks I was using previously. Oh, and do I need to point out that these are green?
Now, can I force myself back to the sewing machine to finish those baby gifts? I'm so close to being done, but I already have plans for another pair of wristwarmers in a different colorway...
