So the other day I mentioned that during a recent clean-up, I found some FO’s that I hadn’t shared yet. There were quite a few things, and I plan on sharing each and everyone of them! :)
First up: wristies. Just as a warning; I made a lot of wristies in the past, and most of them I had lost; so get ready for a wristie-overload over the next few weeks, if you will.
These were made using a 4mm Tunisian crochet hook, and they’re my first pair of wristies ever. They are also my first Tunisian project ever, and even though I REALLY like the look of the fabric Tunisian crochet creates, and was super motivated to make more, I never did. My tension was very tight back when I learned to crochet, and it still was when I picked up the Tunisian hook. Needless to say after making a pair of wristies, my wrist and arm were killing me! Because Tunisian crochet involves having a lot of loops on your hook, combined with my tight tension it really made my hands sore. But, since my tension is perfect nowadays, I think I might try to make another pair! :)
Okay, looking more closely at these wristies, I might *have* to make another pair. These are kind of… rudimentary, if you catch my drift… I had no idea what I was doing back then, as clearly demonstrated by the seams! And the fact that one of the wristies is actually smaller than the other one… Oh well. They still look awesome when I wear them and really, finding old FO’s like these make me appreciate the road I’ve taken to get where I am today. (meaning perfect tension and the ability to start a pair of wristies with the *same* amount of start chains!)
Man, I wish I could remember when I got that yarn… it’s amazing! I love the colors! :)
Okay, I’m off to making myself another hot cup of tea with honey! I’ve been having a soar throat since Friday and even though my voice is almost back to normal, my throat still feels like it’s on fire…
