Fruitful Fusion

They're gorgeous!!! And I love crocheted ribbing. I only recently tried it out for the first time!


Very pretty wrist warmers! They remind me of your ripple afghan! :D


I saw part of it. I was trying to paint and my husband kept distracting me "check out the potatoes!" I love Pollan. Also love your nifty wristwarmers.

And thanks for reminding me of the witch house and that particular Portland walk. I need to buy that book as opposed to just getting it from the library.


Your wrist warmers turned out great and your mom is so lucky to have them. I am also making wrist warmers to go with my new winter coat.


That show was sooooo good! What an interesting perspective Pollan had. I had definitely never considered taking a plant's point of view before...just when you thought nature couldn't be any more clever.

That walk was the first post I'd ever read on your blog, back when you first did it. It inspired me to buy the book and that was the first walk I did. It was absolutely wonderful, though I have to admit I was a tad disappointed when I discovered the actual purpose of the witch house. :)


oooh! I saw these over on Lucy's blog a couple of weeks ago, love your twist on them x


Love the wrist warmers!

Also, I share your struggle getting photos of your own hands.

I've used a timer, with some success, like in this case:

But I've used a husband with far more success -- like in this one:

(So I recommend just having someone else take the photo whenever possible, I guess...)

love the colors! beautiful.

I watched the video and loved it. I'm that person who has to see something done in order to learn it. Although now, after listening to her calm voice I'm rather sleepy and bed fluffiness is so inviting...


Love the rainbow colours! xo


Love your wrist warmers, I made myself some brown ones a couple of weeks ago and plan to make stripey ones soon as well. Thanks for the link to the ribbing, I'm just learning and can use all the help I can get.


I missed the part about the apples, but caught the latter part of cannabis and potatoes (I need to remember to buy organic potatoes!). I guess I'll have to read the book to see what Pollan says about apples.

Your wristwarmers turned out really pretty! I'll be your mum is thrilled to have them. I just finished a pair of wrist warmers, too. Mine are knitted, though. They sure are cozy, aren't they?


well my photo wasn't good but I did use my mac w/built in camera and photobooth. I have perfected the art of taking almost decent self portraits since the few times I have had others take photos of myself it has come out all too unflattering in my opinion.


I did see that on PBS. Very interesting.

I love your new wristwarmers!

Great lookin' wrist warmers!


These are just beautiful. I can crochet the basic granny square..but short rows??? Whew! I think not.
What has truly amused me (and I am easily amused) is the notes about the F hook, the C hook, the D hook, etc.
I love this..I recently had some serious surgery and lost 15lbs. I am just fine, but when you only have B hook sized breasts, they can melt into
A hooks, or 003 hooks.
Forgive my twisted humor..I need all of the funnies I can get.
Truly, I do not mean to be disrespectful of the beauty that you create....only thankful that I can twist a bit around and laugh at an otherwise painful experience. Hook on!!

Oh! I love these! I totally need to learn how to knit. Maybe that will be my November goal.


Those are so cute! :)


I've never been a wristwarmer person, but those might make me a convert! They are sooo pretty!


These wrist warmers are great! I love the colors you chose. Your mom is very lucky!!
These would make great stocking stuffers too!

Amy Caroline

Oh goodness! I was trying to figure out if you knitted the ribbing, just sitting there staring at them. What a cool thing! Thanks or the tip!

Cathy Santarsiero

Love them. They remind me of those Swedish Hannah Andersson little girl hats and things.


Thank you for the beautiful wrist warmers. I just love them and yes, the length is just what I need to keep warm at Saturday Market. Perfect. I'm a lucky mom!
