I’ve knitted dark green wrist warmers in baby wool yarn that is really soft. I then crocheted a lace like edge in moss green (not so soft) wool, in two layers around and instead of sewing them together I added buttons as closure.

Green wrist warmers with buttons

I think they turned out kind of romantic, even though the colours are not. I really like small projects like this, but even thought they are small, sewing on all the buttons took a lot of time.

Green wrist warmers

My inspiration came from the lovely book Poetry in Stitches (Dikt i maskor) by Solveig Hisdal, but I created mine from another kind of yarn, and a few small changes. This book contains the most beautiful sweaters I’ve ever seen. It’s my favorite knitting book, and I’d love to knit one of the sweaters some day, when I get more experience and self confidence perhaps…

I’ve added these wrist warmers to the shop, check it out.
