Wrist Warmers
The Snowflake gloves are for a friend who mentioned to me in passing how she liked them...how her hands are cold at work but with typing she can't wear gloves.

The other pair is a set that I've been wanting to make for a long time and over Thanksgiving I finally made the time for them.

Patterns:
Snowflake Fingerless Gloves (the white pair made in Wildfoote sock yarn)
Mods: I didn't do the fingers, I made them for a friend who seen a pair and really liked them fingerless.

Drops Wrist Warmers (the grey, black, creme, and purple pair-baby alpaca D.K.)
Mods: I changed how the thumb was worked. I CO 40sts and then worked up to 48sts. (Picture is them un-blocked)
