Meanwhile, Back at the Wristies

I concentrated on display props and spring blooms for my recent market. These frilly wristies lingered on my needles. Today I've finished them off.
My earlier versions of these have all been in my handspun wool. These ones are a Bendigo 8-ply, hand-dyed by me. I'm particularly keen on how the colour has distributed to form little stripes in the finished result. That gets broken up in the ruffle to add to the playfulness of the overall result. It's going to be a wrench to put these on the "for sale" stack, but I do have plenty of happy wristies for myself.

I love those blues !
And with Melbourne's current weather....we'll all be needing these all year round.
Thank you for stopping by Suitcase Rummage...was great to see some friendly faces.
And very glad that my over blogging blog is now back in your news feed.

Hope your elbow is feeling better, Dee (the Melbourne one!)
