Fairy Princess Pulse Protectors

Fairy Princess Pulse Protectors

This weekend I made these darling pink, lilac and gold kid mohair “pulse protectors” – a luscious and practical accessory garment for hip Fairy Princesses. And right after those cuties came polar opposite natural mushroom colored, neutral, bamboo yarn Baby Wrist Warmers.

Baby Wrist Warmers

These are so adorable I feel like I want to knit hundreds of pairs and run round popping them on the chubby wrists of every baby I see. Hey, it is COLD here in Glasgow!
