Please ignore my pasty arm (roll on summer!)

Pattern: Warm braid cable wrist warmers
Yarn: Knit Picks Decadence 100% alpaca, shade "Grape" - I used approx 65g of a 100g skein
Needles: Brittany Birch DPNs size 5mm (US8)

Each wristwarmer took me about 3 hours to knit. I'm not a fast knitter (especially on DPNs).

Great pattern, very straightfoward, really clear instructions.

Warm and snuggly. Instant gratification!

Fabulous wrist warmers - it looks like a great pattern. Although, I hope that you won't have to wear them too much this spring!!

they look lovely - the colour is rather scrummy too (you are a dab hand at cables!).

oooer, Harold's coming back....

Wow! I'm thrilled to see another person knitting my pattern. They look beautiful in purple! I lost my pair so I will be making another eventually -- how was the KnitPicks yarn for them? I liked the Cascade Pastaza but it will be fun to try something else, too. :)
I will link to you on my blog. Thanks for saying such nice things about the pattern!
