Rose’s Wrist Warmers are done, and the little grump is thrilled! They fit her like a… well… glove, and they’re so soft! She likes that the mitts are a bit longer than others that I’ve made for her, and I think she was a little bummed that I didn’t finish them before we got hit by the cold spell earlier in the week.
I used KnitPicks Elegance, which is 70% baby alpaca and 30% silk. The yarn held the cables well, and the mitts will keep her warm on the coldest days in Texas. On the down-side, the final product seems just a tad hairy. Also, the mitts bled when I blocked them. Still, the final mitts are gorgeous, and I’m sure I’ll be using Elegance again.
