I stood in line today for four whole hours today hoping to buy tickets for Garth Brookes planned concerts in Dubliin this coming Summer only to be bitterly dissapponted (sold out!)
and b..b..b..blue with the cold !!
Never mind ! I made some new friends in the queue (if only for a few hours !)
& its not just every day you get to start off a (stone-cold-sober) singsong
with a bunch of total strangers on the streets of Cork!!
Lucky I had these little cuties to keep my hands (if not my fingers) toasty warm !
My first time crocheting with bamboo (Sidars Snuggly Baby Bamboo) and it was a really lovely yarn !
I started making up a beautiful wrap (with a pattern I purchased 3 years ago and have yet to use ). As the wrap progresssed I realised that it was going to cost me a small fortune to complete in this particular yarn so I frogged it and came up with a new plan.
I found this pattern online
and modified it somewhat to create my solid blue wrist warmers. I had to modify quite a bit as following the pattern mine were coming out really huge ! I deleted one shell in the round and added a longer wrist section.
I love them , nice and quick to hook up they match my new blue scarf :)
plus theres the added bonus that I have enough yarn left from two balls to make a spare :)
Hope your having a good week & do come back soon !
