DAY 1 
Yesterday February 7th was the first day and I think my day was very successful. I managed to start and finish 1 wrist warmer!
Here is a picture before sewing. Turns out it was too small so I picked up stitches along on side and did some ribbing to make it big enough to fit.
This is my first time make something that uses color work and I think I did pretty good. Here is a picture of the back. 
It took me about 5-6 hours to complete. I had some difficulty at the beginning holding the yarn but I think it got easier as I did it more. 

Team: Freshstitches Friends
Status: Not Finished
Events: Mitten Moguls, Nordic Colorwork Combined, Stash Skeleton
