Lately, Mouse has taken to wearing the Wrist Warmers I made last winter. The much loved pair are from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts in Noro Cash Iroha. Not willing to part from my warmers, I asked Mouse to pick out some yarn, and she could have her own.
I adapted the pattern by doing some real-life model measurements, grabbing the most convenient double pointed needles handy, determining gauge and casting on. I cast on 32 stitches and did a k2p2 rib in the round for five inches, then just ribbed back and forth for four rows to make the thumb hole. I joined the next row to start knitting in the round again. After about an inch, I bound off and was done!
This was super quick ... all done during the Aussie film "He Died with a Felafel in His Hand." It was a good night all around.
