Warm hands

Well, not really. I didn’t have that much yarn left over from a 50-60 yard skein of Montana, but I did make two “hand warmers” that actually fit, but don’t cover the parts of my hands that actually get cold. They’re a fashion accessory, like Madonna wore, right? 🙂

Next up I’m finishing the second mitten for my friend so I can pass on the three pairs I made to a local group and be done with mittens for now. I did order the new book Knitting New Mittens and Gloves so I suppose when that comes out I’ll be back, who knows.

And of course I need to set a plan in motion for this gorgeous yarn:

Yes, that is 20 skeins. I had two of the black version given to me in a swap, and I liked the yarn, but the only place I found it was from Niki who had 20 skeins! She gave me a great deal, so how could I resist? We all know “resistance is futile” right 😉 ?

    I like handwarmers. If they cover the radial pulse on your wrist they do actually make your hands and fingers warmer overall. Strange but true. Won’t stop the fingers from freezing, but makes it a little more tolerable.

    And mmmmm red. Gorgeous.

    Resistance is futile. I have been assimilated.
