I just realized that it is Needlework Monday!
Just recently I dug out and dusted off some of my knitting needles. And I do mean quite literally. They were in pretty bad shape!
I decided to make myself something I knew I would get the most use out of, a nice pair of wrist warmers. There is something very soothing about having something warm on your arms with a thumb hole. I dunno. I'm weird. You know this.
In fact, these little gloves earned me a couple commissions! One coming from as far-flung as New Zealand, actually!
The pattern is incredibly simple and can be worked up pretty quickly! I'll link it at the bottom! The yarn is Red Heart Stripes in Parrot. I have to say, this yarn surprised me quite a bit by how vibrant and beautiful the coloring is. So much so that I grabbed a second ball of the colorway and a couple different ones just to give them a go!
As you can tell, the colors definitely change quite a bit as you knit on so it is pretty much guaranteed that you will not get the same cookie cutter pair unless you decided to skip around and cut some colors out! For instance, there was only ONE strip of yellow in that whole skein. Compared to the second ball I purchased on the bottom right that has two.
Anyway, that is my Needle Monday. I'm being Stitchybitch and trying to get some warmers out for the winter.
