cabled wristwarmers

i have had a pretty informative month! next up, i'm aiming for a sweater and a bramble-stitch shawl, although i have been sorely tempted by all the pretty patterns i have seen on this forum!

thanks, everyone - it has been a learning experience for me, and i am looking forward to my next month of knitting...

the cabled wristwarmers were knit with cascade yarns venezia merino silk, 2 balls (which i got for half price at my lys!) - the pattern is from 'the knitter's bible knitted accessories' - i probably shouldn't post it publicly, but if you want it, PM me and i can email it to you...

Woah! Nice work! And so much in just one month!!!!!!!! Where did you get the pattern for the hand warmers? I think I've seen them before and I'd like to find it again.

the pattern, like i said, came from 'the knitter's bible: knitted accessories'. i actually love this book - it has some fantastic patterns, and the instructions are very detailed, so a beginner like me can follow them easily.

i am WRONG
I am humbled
