wrist warmers

I knitted wrist warmers / fingerless gloves made out of the yarn I didn't use in the socks :) 2.5 circular needle or dpns cast on 48 and just knit two pearl two rib in a tube for 3cm then continue in knit using this video to put the thumb in wherever you want it depending on how long up your arm you want the warmers to go  :-)

Toasty toes :-)

that's it socks finished and lovely warm toasty they are too :-)
I started each sock with the red wool so that the wool patterns match - it meant wasting some of the wool until i got to the red again but it'll save for some wrist warmers i think.

knitting a pair of socks to use up a bit of wool , they don't match too well lol because the patterns are in different places - normally i start in the same bit of yarn so the lines match but i've only got a bit of wool. As usual i'm using this pattern.
