I reached into the pocket and found my favorite ever Mrs. Beetons wrist warmers that I had given up on ever finding long ago!
If you are a knitter you can find the pattern here. The original calls for the mohair on top and the worsted weight on the bottom, but I changed that up. The fussiest part is adding the beads to the cast on across double pointed needles, after that they are pretty easy.
I'm so happy to have them again! I'll be wearing them to Chicago this weekend, where I just heard that by Friday temps may be in the 50's.....which is nice I suppose but I was looking forward to the cold. I promised Mary that I would not wish for snow since that makes it hard for everyone to get to class.
I'll be at City Beads for the first time, but I've known Lisa for a good while now and and am looking forward to being with her and in her store. In fact there are all kinds of lovely people in Chicago I look forward to seeing!
