Well here's the result of my first pair of wrist warmers. Very very easy to knit and I've knitted a few pairs so far for friends. Love the wool which is Sirdar Crofter chuncky very easy to knit with. Am going to knit a cowl/neck warmer thingy next.
I was finishing these off at work today when one of our surveyors decided he would like a pair for going out surveying as they would keep his hands warm whilst allowing him to complete his paperwork and take his samples. So looks like I will have to get some plain black wool and do some more - luckily they dont take long at all to knit.
Thanks everyone for the comments on the start of my mini book - comments mean so much to us all I think.
