quick hooky + giveaway

“Thank you kind people, for giving me the encouragement I needed.”

No really, after my last post where I didn’t quite know where to start, I got my crochet mojo flowing like never before and whipped up these in one night! :)


The perfect wrist wraps! :) I used this pattern: Mad Mad Me’s Mad Wrist Wraps.

It took me about three hours to make one pair. I modified the pattern a bit so I had enough yarn for exactly one pair. I was using one of my lost & found skeins of Noro, that didn’t have a lot of yardage on it. As it turned out I didn’t have enough (booh!), so I finished the second wrap with a shell edging using a different colorway… but it’s not so bad you notice, right? ;)

Yes! I love them :) Because of the thumb hole, these wrist warmers stay in place and don’t slide down your arm (or up your hand) like some other patterns do. They’re perfect for sitting at the computer because your hands are warm, yet your fingers are mobile! ;)

My advice:

“Go forth, and make ye some wrist wraps!”

But wait, didn’t I have some other skeins of Noro left over? What did I make with those? Well…



That’s right! :) I made another pair of wrist wraps, and they can be yours! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post; I’ll draw a winner next week! :)

xo,
wink

ps For all you crocheters out there who want to make this pattern themselves: head on over to my Facebook fan page to win the pattern! I’ll draw a winner as soon as the page hits 500 likes! :)

    Anyway, your writs warmer are beautiful. :-)
