2006 FO #2

Hey, I finished another thing! Alright, I technically started them in 2005, but I'm calling them the second finished object of 2006.

Alpaca Wristwarmers

I whipped these up out of Alpaca with a Twist Baby Twist. It's 100% baby alpaca, and I picked it up at Sophie's Fine Yarn Shop when I visited Louisville. I used US8s and just k4p1 for awhile, then sewed up the seam, leaving a thumb hole. They're absurdly soft, and will make me wonderfully warm when I'm at work. I still have one ball of this left, and no plans for what to make. I thought maybe a lacy scarf, but we'll see what happens.

Awesome! I have been trying to crochet some wristwarmers to wear at my job, but I keep messing up on the pattern I'm trying because heaven forbid I use an actual stitch or row counter to keep track of where I am. :) I am teaching myself how to knit and am currently all about ribbing, so I think I'll give them a shot in knit and see if I can actually get them done.

I like them! They look fun to wear and just right for keeping warm, but having fingers free for working.
