knitted wrist warmers

Here are some cabled wrist warmers I made.

I used this pattern:

...but I made mine shorter, to just cover the wrists, because I usually wear long sleeves when it's cold enough for wrist warmers.

They came out quite big around. Probably anyone with medium to small hands/forearms who doesn't knit very tightly should make them using a smaller needle. (I used #8 as suggested in the pattern.)

This pattern is based on the Irish Hiking Scarf pattern which is available here. I made a short scarf based on that pattern...half in gray and half in pink-and-maroon stripes. It's a very odd looking thing. I rather like it, but I don't think I would wear it in public :)

The fun thing about this pattern was that I got to learn mattress stitch with the help of the online video at Mattress stitch is cool because at the end you pull the strand of yarn and it "zips up" and disappears.
