I made my stepgrandd a scarf out of Homespun, for Christmas; and I wanted to make her a pair of wrist/armwarmers to go with them. Your pattern couldn't come at a better time for me. :cheering:

Thanks guys, my DH really dislikes them, so is embarrassed to be out with me wearing them. I love that they are sooo warm and lovely. Maybe I will try them in a different color see if that's less offensive to him.

On another note, I only created the pattern a few days ago, and posted the pattern when I posted on here and when checking visits on my blog I find that I have had a massive increase in visitors (about 500% or more) and find that my pattern has been added to knittingpatterncentral.com :shock: . I've not been able to check the link since the site is down, but confused that they didn't ask/tell first. Not that I'm bothered, nice to have so many more people looking at my blog.
