The yarn I picked up in Canada is taking shape. With our spring weather here in Dorset being variable, but predominantly wet and windy, I thought Pipi could do with a pair of 'in-between-season' wristwarmers. I picked up the beautiful fine blue yarn from the Fibre Studio on Granville Island, a pair of 3.25mm needles and here we are - 45 stitches per row, 70 rows in stocking stitch, crocheted together with some pink cotton yarn and finished off with some buttons from my little jar. I simply double crocheted the two edges together, leaving a gap for the thumb and a 5mm edge at the top (to roll back - I hear rolled back knitting is on trend at the moment?!). Anyway, they look really cute and even better, they're perfect for early morning lamb feeding!
If you fancied knitting up a pair but haven't got any handspun yarn at your disposal, just use a lace weight yarn, it's ideal for spring time temperatures. I'm cracking on with my fine cotton stash project this weekend, hope you have a good one too xxx
