Here's what I've done so far on the right (or the left) wristwarmer. I think I should have did a swatch first. It doesn't seem wide enough to wrap around your wrist. I have small wrists and it seems to fit on me, but I'm not sure it will on my mom.
Once I finish this, one more to do and I can wrap the pair and put it away, until Christmas.
