of storms and wristlets

saturday morning i arrived at the mouth of big cottonwood canyon, as usual for a saturday, at 7:30 to catch the bus up to brighton. a gorgeous moring with views of both what was:
clear skies
and what was to come:
movin in
yup, saturday night we got a boatload of snow and i was so VERY jealous of those who actually got to play in it on sunday, instead of selling ski school tickets as i was.

anyway, on to the wristlets. you know my hourglass sweater? the one made of noro cashiroha? well, you know how many many people have run out of yarn when they only purchased the amount listed in the pattern? well, i bought 2 extra skeins because of that and, at the end, had 1.5 skeins left over. so i decided to make the wristlets from Last Minute Knitted Gifts as well. I had already made these for a friend, albeit it with stripes instead of solid, and of course i had to change the pattern yet again. how, you ask? well, i made them longer, one pattern repeat longer, so about 16 rows? and i made the spiral ribs go in opposite directions so that they mirror each other.





i have been wearing these A LOT the past few weeks. especially when working the cold ticket counter on friday nights.
