Fingerless Gloves/Wrist Warmers
A friend of mine has been making these so I searched around the internet to see what was about - every pattern I looked at seemed to be knitted in the round - which I have not ventured into! So after visiting lots of places I decided to cast on 32 stitches on 5mm needles using odd bits of double knitting wool I had lying around, as you can see I didn;t have much of anything. Well apart from loads of navy blue - which was very dark. I livened it up with a bit of cable on the backs - the thumb holes are just a gap in the seam.
I see that the fluffy wools etc seem to have lost their popularity this year - I love some of the multi coloured wools that are around. I have since found a ball of oatmeal type of colour, so will make another pair!
