Cascade - Hand knit wrist warmers

I'm so excited to list the first pair of my new "Cascade" wrist warmers in my Etsy shop today!

I've had a few pairs done for a while now in a handful of different colors, but I had no one to model them for me. I finally convinced my best friend Sam to give it a shot - isn't she beautiful? The best part is she really had fun, so we're going to be doing it again. I'm really looking forward to scouting out cool locations around her house in downtown Vancouver to take our pictures throughout the spring and summer!

These are knit with the same soft Superwash Merino yarn as my "Diamond in the Rough" gloves. I am in love with this yarn - it is incredibly soft and warm and there are so many great colors available. And it's made in Canada, which is very cool! I'm really happy with how these gloves turned out. The eyelet pattern reminds me of a waterfall, hence the name. They're feminine and pretty without being overly frilly.

And don't forget, these gloves (along with the Diamond in the Rough gloves) are up for grabs in the Live Life Softly give-away going on now! If you haven't already, be sure to enter for your chance to win a free pair!

Great job with the pictures; they really highlight the wrist warmers and are fun at the same time.

I thought the huge abacus just oustide Chinatown towards Tinseltown was cool!

Oooh, these are great! Good for you for using Made in Canada wool too. I have a feeling these will be a popular item in your shop. Lovely!
