Rose's Wrist Warmers

As promised, photos of Rose's Wrist Warmers. I wasn't sure how to get a good photo of these, since the yarn is black but we stepped outside into the setting sun and used a flash, which seemed to help get enough relief on the cable stitches, although it did wash out the color of my shirt somewhat.

I used exactly 2 skeins of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran for these wrist warmers, with barely a yard of each skein leftover. The only adaptation I made was to make the palm side ribbed, after another blogger mentioned that her set turned out a little loose and she needed to drop a few stitches and crochet them up into a ribbed pattern to make the fit snugger.

Hockey update - no news from the district on re-instating HB. We have the president of our association and the Commissioner of Bantams, as well as our head coach all working to resolve this as soon as possible because the Cinderella story continues. The boys pulled out a stunning 4-1 upset last night and are going to the championship rounds starting Friday night. If you believe in prayer, please send some our way, as HB doesn't deserve to miss the championship round because of an accidental kick. He has always believed in playing the game fair and clean and has the low penalty minute record to show it.

This Hockey Mom's heart is heavy and the knitting mojo is temporarily gone . . . at least until the hockey mojo is back in the house.

Love, love love the wristwarmers!!! Nice job! And I'll most certainly be thinking good thoughts for HB. The fact that he has so much support speaks volumes for his sense of fair play and sportsmanship. I have to believe that this will be realized by the powers-that-be.

My best wishes are with you and HB.

Your wristwarmers are lovely and elegant!
