A story about picking the right yarn

This past weekend a friend Elin defended her thesis. I was of course giving her a gift and what better gift than something knitted? I made a pair of wristwarmers which was pretty much all I had time for but I luckily I could whip them up in just a few days. I’ve made these before and I know it’s important to find the right yarn. I was worried this would have too much of a halo but I think it turned out okay. It was the yarn I could find in the stash in such short notice. I think they turned out very well and I hope Elin think so too.
