I found this pattern of Alice from the popular movie Twilight wearing these cute wrist warmers. It was on Craftzine.com. I made my set using size 9 circular knitting needles. I go to a knitting meet-up and a lady showed me how to make the magic loop so I wouldn't have to use double pointed needles which this pattern called for.I used Eco yarn color Plums and I made mine a little slimmer since my wrists are smaller then most. I chose the colors because I thought I could wear them with brown, gray, black or plum colored sweaters. I am sure they will be a hit this winter since New Moon will be coming out 11-20-09 can't wait to see the movie!
A friend asked me if I would make her special friend a baby blanket for her son. It will be a Christmas present. His bedroom is the Jungle so I made it using the colors of jungle leaves (red heart yarn) and sewed with thread a Monkey patch (Joann's etc.) I really like the way it came out with the crochet stitch Puffy. Hope he likes it!
