Just a quick little crochet project
These simple fingerless gloves made a nice little project that was both easy to do and quick to finish. It gave me a sense of achievement in the midst of several big projects. It used up some yarn left over from making a couple of blankets and they should keep my hands nice and warm too.

Ta da! Attic24 wrist warmers

The pattern is one of Lucy's at the Attic24 blog...

And now I must toddle into town to buy milk, a jar of curry sauce and some sort of cake or pie for desert. I didn't feel like doing a proper shop today and I had some beef in the freezer which will work nicely in a curry. Another working week starts tomorrow. I've still not quite got used to being constrained to a fixed schedule after 5 years of being able to work more or less as and when suited me, but it's beginning to feel more natural. After all, I've worked outside the home for long enough in the past.

Current Mood: accomplished accomplished

I love the way you put colors together.

Thanks. It's something I'm working on. I can do tasteful and safe combinations, but I still haven't mastered is the unexpected combination of colours that actually looks great together. Some people on the Facebook crochet group I belong to can do it, but I can't.
