Here she is drinking gin at our nephew's wedding:
So I made her a pair of little wristies to cheer her up and protect her wrists and to tell her I love her heaps:
The bright multi-coloured wool is a soft and cuddly soy/wool mix, the turquoise is 8 ply pure wool. Despite what it looks like it is really a 2Purl 2Plain rib, and with a picot cast-off (how smartie pants am I getting with my knitting, eh!)
I also made wristies for The Sweetheart to wear in his freezing cold office:
Is Opal sock wool, all ribbed to be stretchy and snuggly.
And lacy socks for my all singing, all dancing Bollywood Princess Parvyn Kaur Singh (Google her name - there are thousands of links to all sorts of delightful youtube sites, and to her songs. She is gorgeous!)
I added ribbons through the eyelets just for fun.
THIS is the method I used but there are lots of vids and pages showing how to do it. So much easier than one at a time, and really doesn't seem to take that much longer. Also, essential for lacy socks cos then the patterns are matching...
