WIPW - I'm (not really) ready for winter

Work In Progress Wednesday. Check it out at Pintangle.

This week's report is short and sweet. I have completed the second wrist warmer and I am ready for winter. Honestly, though, I don't mind a bit more of summer and then a gentle easing into autumn before I will be needing these samples of Swedish wool embroidery to keep warm.

    1. Yes, aren't they cuddly? However, the fringe on the second wrist warmer did not fuss up over a steaming kettles as well as the first one did. If you look carefully at the picture you can see the difference. I hope with time it will be fluffy and nice.

  3. They are so pretty! Did you use the crochet way for the fringe this time?

    1. Oh, Annet! I feel so honoured that you remember about the crochet technique. No, I stitched this in the same way as the first one. The reason? My crochet hooks are on the other side of the Blobe, in Japan.

    1. Tack! Ja, jag är nöjd med resultatet, men av någon anledning var det mycket svårare att fluffa upp den andra kavelfransen över en ångande kastrull. Det är en blandning av ullgarn och kanske är det mer hårdtvinnade i den andra...

    1. Thank you Anita.
      Yes, isn't the chain stitch just right for a border stitch?

  10. Winter seems so far off with today's heat and humidity, but those wrist warmers are just asking to be worn.
