In other news, I have finished knitting the wrist warmers. I'm very pleased with the finished product and even more so that they only took one ball of wool (pattern said two). I will give them to a friend for her birthday.
I still have another ball of the same wool and will probably knit another pair for myself.
For my next project, I'm going to try a small knitted toy for Leo......just have to choose cat, dog or bunny!
