The wrist warmers are complete. That was a very quick knit if we ignore the fact that the prep was done months ago by my sister who patiently threaded those beads. I used in total just under 200 beads for both wrist warmers, but that is just my rough estimation, don't think you can make me actually count them. :)
Drops Alpaca is soft and warm, it comes in great colours and is generally a joy to knit with. Normally I'd try to avoid using 1.25mm needles, but this is such a fast knit that it was really no problem at all.
Unfortunately, this pair is going to be a present to my MIL. Unfortunately, because I quite like them myself. Once I get the hang of threading the beads easier, I'll get to knitting some more pairs. This seems as a good and quick Xmas present knit.
