I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday. I made the traditional dinner for my immediate family and everything turned out the best it’s ever been! The exception was the pecan pie – which I was REALLY looking forward to. You could not get it out of the pan. At all. I tried. Many times. That may have been a positive because it kept me from eating the whole thing…somehow I managed to eat plenty!!
How do you like my candlestick warmers??
Actually, that is just how I blocked them! They look kind of cute like that, though, don’t ya think!! These are the free Drops pattern called Fjord Rose Wrist Warmers, which comes in many different things (sweater, neck warmer, socks, etc.). Don’t know why, but I just had to make them. I used a mishmash of yarns and much larger needles than called for.
Here they are being worn:
I thought they would add a cute knitting element to my store-bought sweaters. Plus, they ARE wrist warmers and I am getting prepared for the next round of polar vortex weather .
Sock Monkey Bag thinks the wrist warmers are the most beautiful, stunning, gorgeous things he has ever seen!!
I think it is love at first sight!!
PS to the Pats — the Sweater Vase was purchased from Crate and Barrel. I saw them in Vogue Knitting and the hunt was on!! Unfortunately, I bought it in early 2012 right after the 2011 holiday season. I do not believe they are still available.
PS2: I did a little bit of sashaying with Sock Monkey Bag and my new wrist warmers at knitting last night for Kathy’s benefit!!
