In the middle of summer I'm knitting wrist warmers. And for a summer birthday no less. I'm continuing my streak of knitting Doctor Who patterns - these are for a friend who only recently became a fan. The pattern is fantastic, with an easy-to-follow chart. Color coded. Awesome.
I used smaller needles and different yarn than in the pattern, but I'm super satisfied with the result.
The only trouble with this project was finding the right colored yarn. I bought 4 different shades of pink/purple/plum before deciding on this color. Still not the same as in the show, but closest, given the choices I had.
Pattern: Rose's Wrist Warmers (also known as Doomsday Wrist Warmers)
Yarn: Iva, 1 skein and a little bit more
Needles: 3 mm DPN
Time it took: 10 days
