Whitewater (Bluewater?) Wristwarmers



Whitewater Wristwarmers, made with Tilli Tomas Voile de la Mer on size 1 dpns. The pattern was very fun, though my tiny little bent and splitting bamboo dpns made things difficult! I added an extra repeat of the lace pattern in the cuff area and did ribbing at the very top instead of simple stockinette as was called for in the pattern (just like Hattie did).

I wasn't thrilled with the way the color turned out and didn't decide that until both mitts were finished...so what you see here are my mitts dyed with Berry Blue Kool Aid. Though they don't match much of my wardrobe, they sure smell nice!

Wow - I love the way those turned out. And nothing like a little eau de Berry Blue to liven things up!

They are a very pretty color! I think the ribbing just looks more...unified. I'm not sure why she didn't do it that way to begin with. Either way, they look great and isn't it a fun pattern? Much easier than the look. :)
