Charmed Wrist Warmers

As I've said before, The Animator's Wife has certainly been busy while I've been hiding in the bedroom. Every time I come out, there is more yarn and more FOs! Right now the living room is covered with random lengths of yarn and boxes for one of her biggest projects ever, which I will keep to myself until she announces it formally. But I will give you a clue: it involves a shop.

I think I'm done hiding in the bedroom though. I've discovered that The Terror is more goofy than terrifying, and he doesn't bother me anymore since Osiris let him know who's boss. The Animator's Wife's crochet projects seem to confuse him, though. He met Monterey the other day, and I think he had quite a difficult time trying to figure out if it was alive or not.

Anyway, as I promised before Christmas, here is one of the patterns The Animator's Wife was working on during my hibernation. It's a crochet version of Knitty's Voodoo Wrist Warmers. Mmm... So warm!
