Years ago, when I was unfamiliar with the Nordic winters, I thought wristwarmers were pretty useless! Soon, I figured I am freezing my hands off and gloves or mittens are no good to get my work done while staying warm. Wristwarmers worked better. It is now again that time of the year when wristwarmers become my best friends while I am indoors.
I follow a lot of crochet (& knit) blogs. I have made a number of projects using other designers’ patterns. There are days when no pattern or chart makes sense to me. It is like I temporarily cannot figure out how to do FDC or some other stitch that is required. On one such day, I crocheted this.
