Wrist warmer in Panda Silk

Wrist warmer

Ohhh... this yarn was so calling to me. It is Panda Silk 4005 Fern tones, and I am an absolute green junkie.

I could not resist to work with it. And to be honest, it is such a delicate yarn to play with. It feels soft in your hands, especially when working with Bamboo needles US size 1.5 or 2.5 mm works like a breeze with this yarn.

The feeling is extremely soft, but it is not to be compared with wool or cotton. It is a treat. A true treat. It is not only a treat for feet, but also for hands, and waiting to be showed to the public. (it is available in the stores in the US early 2008.

But how does it feel while wearing on your hands?
Warm, but not too warm. In the winters we have generally in The Netherlands, it is good to have a pair of wrist warmers or mittens made, but usually we don't have to wear them too often. For me, a wrist warmer for the right hand is a must, in order to prevent pains in my wrist.

It is flexible, and comfortable, What could I wish more? Now I have to get going and work out the pattern....I guess it will be available in time on the CPY Pattern Page.

Special thanks to Susan though, for giving me the chance to play with Panda Silk.

    This is real late now, but I thought it still might interest you: Tuulia has put the Aili Mittens pattern in English in internet. You can also find it through Ravelry.
