Granny smith green - wrist warmers

My youngest likes green, vibrant green. During our last visit to Seattle (and finally realizing one can drool over Little Knits in person rather than just placing online orders), we purchased a skein of Cascade 220 Superwash. It is soft and spongy, but with a bit of an acrylic feel and susceptible to splitting.

Using an alterating 4-stitch cable pattern that crosses at different intervals (it resembles hearts) to make simple wrist warmers. Hopefully we can eke out a scarf as well. Unlike my daughter, I'm not a fan of vibrant green so crossing my fingers for no leftovers.
