Abra Alba Wrist Warmers: Finished!

And second knitting project completed! Y’all, I’m a knitter! Not a bad way to start off the new year.

Alba Wristwarmers

These fun wrist warmers are a gift for a good friend of 19 years for her 30th birthday. I’m about a month late but she knew she was getting them . . .

My scallops could use a little smoothing on the corners but I’m pretty happy with my second ever knitting project. I used Liberty Wool (colors 7813,7836, 7816, and 7880) which is so soft and washable!

And now on to the next project, which may be a Downton Abbey knit-along. . .

    Ummmmm those are gorgeous! As far as a cost-reward ratio, what do you think? Would you make some for yourself? Do they require a lot of yarn? I’m thinking of taking up knitting to add to my crocheting.

      I would make some for myself and they don’t require much yarn – I think I have enough leftover to make another pair. . . The yarn I bought was a bit pricey ($8/ball) and this was my first project to complete with ribbing/color change/dpns and I was learning quite a bit as I went along. I think if I made them again they would knit up much quicker!

      It’s coming along very nicely but a bit slow! I think I’ve learned my lesson on using sock weight yarn to make a sweater. It’s very soft but takes a very long time to knit up! I’ll post a picture soon.
