Wrist warmers for a friend

This is my second attempt on wrist warmers. The first one was for my baby girl. this time I have made a pair for my dear friend Anna in Cornwall, England. She runs a Bed & Breakfast,  Boscean Country House Hotel located by the sea close to Land's End and now in winter she always complains about being cold. So I thought a pair of wrist warmers might do the trick when she is doing her book keeping and renovations to prepare for the next season. If I could I would have made her a pair of socks, but that is more for knitting and I find knitting a bit fiddely and ... well, to many sticks and loops to keep track of...

I made these wrist warmers a bit different this time. I started with a base chain of 35 and made a ring with a slip stitch and then I crocheted them as a tube. I descreased before the hole for the thumb and after to make it a bit more tailormade and snug. I finished it off with a single crochet bobble edging at the top and some crab stitches at the wrist. I used a DK acrylic yarn and needle 3,5 (EUR). They are really cozy and warm, snug and pretty. And quickly made. I will make myself a pair as I usually get very cold when sitting by the computer.

Anyway, if anyone has their way to the south of England, visit my friend. She is a great hostess and always makes you laugh and feel good. She is a girl who loves the good things in life and she lives in a beautiful place.

    Jo, amn vill sá mycket. Min vän Bobo pá Rumba de Kransen kallar det för kreativ stress, vilket jag tycker ár ett kul uttryck.
