Wrist sizes

Because BLW isn't just for lentil-weavers. Some of us like to piddle about with bits of felt and sticky-backed plastic as well.

5ft5, size 5 feet but HUGE bones :wink: lol!

Funny isn't it? I just recall at school my wrists were always bigger than my friends and someone once remarked on it so I guess from that point I had always assumed they were big......clearly they actually had TINY wrists and I was normal

13.5cm?! That's tiny! Makes me feel like the jolly green giant with enormous shovel hands to boot (I do have to wear men's gloves :oops:)

5"6, size 12, size 6 feet - all quite normal really. Just freakily large hands.

Mine are a bit under 16cm - they look quite small to me, i've always assumed they probably were about average or just under (they are def much more dainty than some other bits of me!)

Mine is 15cm (measured with a pipecleaner and ruler combination and I thought they were tiny. I must be big boned and tiny framed at the same time!! Although, my fingers look slender but my ring finger is a K and a lot of my friends have H-J sized ring fingers.

Interesting how relatively similar wrists sizes are.
So somehow it happened, my weaners are at school,
I'm still here though and people I'll try to fool,
with tales of advice giving and of wanting to know
But really here's the only place I ever want to go.

My ring fingers are an N/O. My middle fingers are an S on one hand and T on the other.

Sorry BC, we seem to have gone a bit off tangent...

I honestly have no idea what size my fingers are, or what size my friends fingers are either.

Which rather all reveals the absurdity and hypocrisy of me making any sort of adornment.

My ring fingers are I 1/2. I'm surprised your wrists and fingers are bigger than mine TGD!
