Blue + Yellow Wrist Warmers

Oh the joys of developing pattens as you go.

A grandmother of two boys I've recently been babysitting asked me if I could make her a pair of wrist warmers in Maize + Blue (for U of M).  I've made a pair or two before for me, but never with thumbs (my first attempts just left holes for the thumb) but I told her I could find a pattern and make them for her no problem.  And I did!  Surprisingly quick for me ;) hehe.  And I had them done in 2 or 3 weeks!  The catch?  The main cable on the second glove started worming its way toward the thumb -- I had misplaced the thumb hole too close to the cable :(

So I ripped the top half out & re-worked it, paying attention to wear I made my increases this time ;)

I'm happy to report it looks just as nice as the first glove & I can't wait to see how Grandma likes them.

She was even entertaining the idea of my making a pair for each of her grandsons in Steelers' colors.  But we'll see.  The boys started running with the idea and wanted to add 4+ different colors and trying to visualize how to pattern that out was too overwhelming.  So I call this project To Be Continued. ....
