Purple wristwarmers

I’m in a purple mood lately… I also wanted something wearable to work (my pink wristwarmers are getting a bit frayed and the colour doesn’t fit with everything).

I learned how to knit an afterthought thumb with this pattern. But didn’t enjoy it… I also thought the pattern was a bit weird because the arm really flares out after the wrist. Worn on bare arms they look like superhero gloves! 😛 But they look nice worn over vest or hoodie sleeves like in the photo.

These were knitted with the same yarn as the hat and scarf my mom made me last year (she gave me the rest!). Purple acrylic yarn.

The pattern is Silmu Arms by Marianne Heikkonen. It’s available for download on Ravelry.

Owl in Tree Wristwarmers

These are wristwarmers I knitted for a friend’s birthday (about 4 months late, d’oh!).

I used the “Owl Mitts” pattern from Sandy Satre (via Ravelry). I wanted the owl to be in a tree but there wasn’t enough rown on top of the owl to add green “foliage”, so I figured the fingers would be the branches! : )

From my absolute favourite New Who episode: Doomsday. I cried for days after that one! I loved Rose so much! So  when I saw this pattern, I absolutely had to make it!

It was my first try at cables, my first try at thumbs (they are really ugly!) and my first gauge swatch knitting. Oh! And my first pattern alteration because I couldn’t get the right gauge. I bought sock yarn and no matter what needle I used, I just couldn’t get it. So they don’t look like the pattern at all, but I love them to bits, and I think they’re gorgeous (except the thumbs). And they are my absolute favourite thing I have made so far (to this day!).
