Easy Crochet Wrist Warmers - Ta Dah

These were a super speedy make.  The Skein of Yummy Yarn Organic Falkland Aran arrived yesterday.  The colourway is called 'Primula'.  I have never used Falkland, it is so light, soft and squishy it is gorgeous to work with.  These will be lovely to wear, I find gloves too restrictive but my hands are fully functional in wristwarmers.  They still keep your hands very warm.  I was inspired by this pattern for Victorian Shell Mittens.  But I ended up straying from the pattern and heavily modifying the design.
I am rather pleased I got two pairs out of one skein.  One pair for myself and one pair for a Ravelry friend.  I believe in 'The Angels of Parking' and frequently use them with considerable success.  If I want or need a parking space I say 'Please angels find me a parking space'....and they do!  Seriously...  Well I found myself asking the Yarn Angels for help last night.  'Please Angels, let there be enough yarn for me to finish this last Mitt...'  It worked again I had about 20cm of yarn to spare!
All my photography assistants and models are busy today, so I struggled to take a photograph of my own 'Mitted' hand.  It wasn't quite as bad as trying to photograph a hat on my own head, See Here My attempts at photographing a hat on my own head! Doh!!! but the results were still not really that successful.  My freckles show up well though don't they? 


  1. Just perfect as the cooler days are coming!

  2. You talk to parking angels too!!!!
    When I learned to crochet one of the first things I made was fingerless mittens, everybody I knew received some.
    Love the yarn.
    Have a great weekend.

  3. These look fantastic- so bright for the winter

  4. You are so productive! I will have to try some of those. I found out I have gout in my right foot today.... bleh.. it's very painful. Love your freckles, it looks like my sister's arm, she's been a freckled redhead and I love it!!

  5. Wow, your mitts look fantastic and I love the colours in the yarn! Good job :)

  6. Lovely wrist warmers.
    pleasing colours.
    I loved 'the angels of parking'. I should try calling them next time.. :)

  7. Those are very cute! Nice colors and very comfy looking. Two sets out of one skein is really quite impressive. It's always nice to feel like you really got a steal with your purchase :) I hope they keep you warm in the upcoming months!

  8. Love the colors!! I would love a pair, great gift idea :)
