3. wrist warmers



This is the third pair of wrist warmers I have created, 
but it is not the last pair I have made recently.

The start and the end are 3 rows purl
The thumb is knitted up from the wrist,
with a stitch each round.
Ending with 13 stitches, and then bound off.
I forgot that there is a difference in placement on right and left thumb, 
so they are made alike, and are therefore incorrectly made.
As you can see on the picture.
But I didn't notice till after I was done, so I let it be..
Made from the leftover yarn of the two previous wrist warmers
--------------
yes, December is almost here :)

wrist warmers

The edges are 3 rows purl
thumb knitted up from wrist, with stitches added on each row

Sorry about the background always being my copper table.
If I had the energy I would go outside to take pictures there, 
but I haven't.
So this is just how it is.

-------------------
Survived, and enjoyed whole day with family yesterday, very big for me.

wrist warmes

A pair of wrist warmers done.

 I did the bottom edge differently on the two, 
called a picot edge as far as I know.
and the result is as you see - the right one being pretty crooked.
With thumbs knitted up from the wrist. adding stitches each round.
Ending with 12 stitches and then closing them off.

------------------
Boredom is my middle name
I am so bored

Especially when I still haven't got the energy to do the most simple things,
and still having social fobia
not being able to do things like:
cooking, washing my clothes, taking down the trash, cleaning, shopping for food, going for walks, getting out in general.

but,but I am getting better, there is no doubt about it.

how can I explain it.
Perhaps if the above things, before was 100% impossible to do,
 now they are only 50 % impossible to do.
If that makes any  sense at all..

work in progress, embroidery

I work on this embroidery when I am really bored.
I work on it at night, when I am waiting to get tired enough to sleep.
The result will hopefully be a long piece for a pillow sometime in the future.

Mittens

First time I have made a thumb like this.
(I don't know what it is called)
I really like it, 
its more fitted, and nice
The right mitten it more loosely knitted and larger.
This is because I knitted the last half of it ½ a year later than the rest.
That is what you get from putting aside projects...
But oh well, 
I am just pleased they are finally done:)


I used the picot hem
and then different patterns before starting on the main pattern.

The pattern is a remake of one I found at ravelry, (a knitting/crochet site)
Of' course I can't remember which one.
But I had to change the pattern to fit my hand..
apparently I got too small hands for most patterns, 
which is a bit annoying, 
because then I have to change every pattern before I can use them.

None the less, it was really challenging and fun to make.

potholders


Potholders done

The ones on the top picture I actually made last christmas, 
but I only got around to stitching it together now.
The three on the bottom picture I crocheted one evening last week.
 Used up small scraps of yarn I had laying around.
very satisfying with a quick result once in a while.

Kitty

 Selma lying on the afghan I am working on

 Selma newest "thing", licking a plant...


She makes me want to live, if for nothing else, for her.
