Friday Quickies

Happy Friday!  The weather has finally gotten cooler, if you can call 95 degrees cool.  But after going through 20 plus days of triple-digit temperatures, yes, I do call 95 degrees cool.  But we still need rain.

So on that note, I made a pair of wristers: 

These should keep me warm when it's cold in the room and let me keep on crocheting and blogging.  These are so simple to make.  It's made with Lion Brand Hometown USA and a P hook.  It's a simple half-double crochet stitch.

Chain 14
Row 1: HDC in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch across
Row 2: Ch 2, turn, hdc in each stitch across.
Repeat Row 2 until piece measures about 7 - 12 inches from beginning.  (Measurement depends on how long you want it - mine is 8 inches). 
Fasten off.

Beginning at top edge, sew side edges together for 1 inch, leave next 1 1/2 inches open for thumb, sew remainder of side edges together.
Weave in ends.

There you go.  Easy peasy.  And warm. 

Until next time, keep on hooking.
