I`ve been using lacy sock patterns for decor on my wristwarmers this summer and that worked well for 2,5 and 3mm needles, but I now see a whole new world unweil before me with cables and thicker yarns for more whintery creations... Harr harr.
I have mostly used alpakka yarns and baby style yarns untill now. I allmost cannot wait to come home from work and dive into my stash and try some of the patterns to the right.
The pics aren`t all that, but the left one is embossed leaves and the right one is a modified pattern from web;April/May(I think it was Blue Moon fibers?) I`ll find the link later.
