Wrist Bands: A Super Quick Knit

So my friend who works at Starbucks has wrist tattoos and can't let them 'show' so to help add to her style I have knit her some personalized wrist bands. This is the second set I have done and I am quite pleased with the look. I took the future sock pattern I am going to use and modified it to work with this variegated acrylic. The pattern looks kind of crazy, but it is beautiful. I know acrylic is not too classy, but let's think - espresso flying, milk, blended beverages, cashmere or some other super soft yarn wouldn't work in this case!

Oh, those came out so cute! Hey, those colors are pretty nice for an acrylic, it almost looks like Noro! What yarn is it?

I love them! I went for my tattoo consult last night and I've decided to def get the anatomical heart on the inside of my wrist...I may need to make myself some of those cuffs!

I really like the pattern and I think the fiber will hold up in the environment it will be put in. KUDOS!!

Okay those are totally cool. I should make something like that for one of the girls at work who's always freezing from the AC. I swear I need to make myself some fingerless gloves for the same reason. for some reason it's always my fingers that freeze in the AC. Must be cuz they're always on my mouse or keyboard at work LOL. Awesome job though - they're great :)
