My daughter bought a pair of wristlets that she loves to wear. I never liked them - not what they are, or the design on them, but that they were cheaply made. Within 2 weeks, they started to fall apart.
I figured I could whip them up quickly - they are small, and the thumb area is just a slit.
But of course she picked out fingering weight yarn. meaning size 3 needles. So each pair is taking a bit longer than I wanted.
I'm going to keep playing with the pattern in different yarns and see how they look.
