I'm knitting a pair of wristers after seeing Dawn's pair on Saturday at Stash Yarns where Jill was knitting some in Shepherd Worsted. Polly's pair are now finished; mine are taking a little longer. I frogged wrister #1 yesterday (didn't like the Kf&b increases or that the bottom bands of rib was K2, P1 and the top band K2, P2 and so didn't match), fiddled with the pattern and reknitted #1 plus about half of #2. Dawn and Polly added thumbs to their wristers, I didn't.
They're knitted in Malabrigo Merino, colourway Violettas, and the yarn colour is fairly accurate in the first pic. The second pic is testament to my inability to get to grips with the 3.75mm dpns I bought to knit the yarn. I struggled with them for about half a cuff, muttering uncomplimentary things about porcupines and other spiky things (being polite here), frogged the cuff (messy, ladders) and started again on two circs. Much more comfortable to hold, no ladders and my knitting looks better!
Dawn brought her copy of this into Stash
It's one of the nicest knitting books I've seen - I reckon that I'd be happy wearing about 90% of the designs which range from easy to seriously challenging. It's a Big Glossy Book (26cm x 28cm), beautifully photographed in and around Cambridge (that's Cambridge, UK, in case you're wondering) and with lots of extras to help the chart-phobic amongst us. I'd already ordered it from The Book Depository and my copy arrived this morning. If you like knitting lacy shawls and wraps, this book is a must-have.
