Wristers Too!

I have joined the Wristers craze. It seems to be going around Stash at the moment. Mine are done in Malabrigo's Velvet Grapes colourway, and is based on Fetching from Knitty. I ended up doing the cables in a way other than the pattern because I didn't bother to read the pattern carefully. I like the way they look anyway. I also made the thumb and finger part quite a bit longer so that they would cover my fingers a bit more. As usual, I had to go down a needle size, and change the amount of stitches cast on.
























On another note, last week was Thanksgiving, which is why it took me so long to get a post up here. We spent the entire last week cooking, so not much knitting took place. I am now going to start my Mobius kit from Fleece Artist. I have to go take a look at the cast on, it looks a little tricky. More photos to come later.

I looked at the instructions for a Moebius scarf and chose to knit a regular scarf in basket-weave and then graft it into the Moebius shape, so I failed the course! I am saving up my pennies (£££) to buy more Malabrigo, it is such wonderful colours, and soooo soft.

I've done a pair in that colourway, but my colours were far more mixed up than yours.....

I've now done another variation with a ruffle at the cuff....

your colourway is very pretty. I thought that it might look to jumbled but no, it'very pleasing indeed. So you were cooking up a storm for turkey day? Isn't it one of the best holidays?

Love the wristers - I really will have to make some now I can stop at home at weekends!

The best instructions I have found for a mobious are in Cat Bordhi's book
