Knitted Wrist Warmers

Having as good as finished Mr Tartankiwi's (as yet unphotographed) jumper while we were away on holiday, I found myself searching for new projects to start with a couple of days of holiday left.

The main raw material that I had near at hand was leftover wool from the jumper, so I decided to have a bit of an experiment and design my own pattern for a pair of wrist warmers.


My original intention was to make them for myself, but when Mr Tartankiwi realised what I was doing, he used his logic to point out that it was leftover wool from HIS jumper so anything made with it should be for him!

What can I say, I must've been feeling generous because I caved to his will!

I must admit that they didn't turn out quite as well as I had hoped- they're a bit baggy at the wrist (I won't be sharing my pattern on here any time soon!) But, Mr Tartankiwi has been wearing them and seems happy enough, so I guess they count as a success!

They look so snuggly and warm when Mr Tartankiwi wears them that I am definitely going to have to knit a pair to keep my own wrists warm this winter. The advantage of having generously caved to Mr Tartankiwi's will is that when I make a pair for myself, I can improve on the pattern and get some that really fit properly!

Now before you go, please don't forget to drop over to Big Little today.  The Hottie Project is such a great initiative and I really hope that we see lots of hottie covers linking up at the end of the Blog Hop!
