I'll give you one guess... yep


I think it might have been dinosaurs :o)

Meanwhile, back to the knitting, and These are the wrist warmers I made in a black acrylic (washes well) for my niece, Immi.


They were adapted from the pattern at knitty. The Voodoo pattern was changed slightly by knitting together 2p over the thumb hole 3 times so that the new pattern would read k2 p1 k2 p1 k2 and then return to a normal k2 p2 rib for the rest of the hand. I also made them a little longer here so that they go up the fingers further. DD likes them and wants some too, so they must be ok :o)

Very hard to photograph black and especially when all your models are in bed. Haven't heard whether the recipient liked them but the shawl went down well. Grandma says her mother had a bed jacket just like it which she still has but is too shabby to wear so she was very pleased with a new one. I was pleased with this little bit of family history and the idea of bed jackets in general :o)
