To celebrate Valentine’s Day I made myself a couple of romantic wristwarmers. They were also a bit of comfort crocheting, ’cause I had a bit of an accident with my bicycle last Tuesday 😦 It wasn’t slippery at all! But my folding bike decided to drop the saddle, which immediately blocked everything and I went head over heels over the steer! A very friendly busdriver (of an empty tourist bus) insisted on bringing me home, with bus and all!!! I was a merely 100 meters away from my home, but due to the narrow streets, we took the scenic route hehehe.
My left knee is a bit swollen and still hurts, my right knee is a bit less painfull as is my right shin. I was shaken all over and decided to make something lovely to easy it. That became the Queen of Hearts wristwarmers. They can be found on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/queen-of-hearts-wrist-warmers or directly on Nikki Edwards’ blog: http://luna-sea.tumblr.com/post/10270503171/queen-of-hearts-wrist-warmers.
The ones I made are 10 hearts wide instead of 6. The yarn I used is 100% cotton by the Dutch company Lammy, called Rio, colour 607. I used the 2.5 mm hook (my favourite!).
Have a nice Valentine’s Day!
