wrist warmers

so a friend came to me asking if I could make wrist warmers. I told her I would see what I can do and I'm not making any promises....
What do you think? I love them! And they are very warm.
I didn't follow anyones pattern...just went for it.
I will share with you some key points since I'm horrible and explaining things or writing patterns.
I used a g hook and the yarn is called charisma by Loops & Threads (its a little chunky)
To start off you will chain 23 and join to make a circle.

make sure if fits somewhat snug (because they do stretch)
And notice how I am starting at the knuckles working my way down. (some patterns might start at the wrist first)

I did 3 rows of hdc (23 on each row) then when I got to the 4th row I did 2 hdc then i made my thumb hole by chain 4 and skip 2 hdc and continue around. 


continue to hdc 4 more rows then you can start the dc clusters. I don't even know how to explain the dc clusters. honestly I really don't even know how I did it...it just kinda turned out as i went along.
The first round of the clusters is 3dc skip 2 repeat all the way around

 The hardest part was starting a new round.  I found that if you do 2 dc in the first space and move on then when you finish the round you do your last dc in that last space to make it 3 dc....clear as mud?
I did 8 rounds of dc cluster, you can obviously make it longer or shorter.
I can't wait to do another pair. I think I will try 3 different colors next time.
So thanks for stopping by, I'm linking up to these parties:

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

This is a must have in the summer heat I had a summer baby, born in July!  And I wanted her to have privacy when out in public but there was no way I was going to drape a blanket over her so as a sewer I came up with a solution! Moms are problem solvers!

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
