wrist-warmer high-five!

During a little Scrubs (season 3) 'half-marathon' I managed to make enough progress on the wrist warmers to be able to see the start of the DNA cable - high five!!!



Here's a progress shot of the first one posing with my (almost) brand new knitting book - The Knitter's Handbook.


(I bought this with a Borders gift voucher T & N gave me for my birthday.

Oooh this book is so pretty!
I really love the way that each different section of the book - patterns, cables, etc - has a different colour along the side of the pages, and all the swatches match that colour!
The photography is so beautiful, and the instructions are clear - I used it the night I got it home to try a different cast-on method =))

The wrist warmers are turning out very well, I think.
I am using Lincraft's 'Lima' and it feels really soft, and I'm really pleased with how the cables are coming up - especially since these are my very first =)

I've got a little bit to go, then its time to start the thumb gusset =)

yipee

besos =)

  4. Wonderful cable - aren't they fun? I must do something with the DNA design too...

    We're working our way through Scrubs too, up to the middle of series 4 as of last night :) Silly people - my favourite sort!
