With the instant arrival of fall and obvious signs of winter I have been finishing up projects started last year and thinking about new ones. I like to have a lot of hand warmers around because when the weather starts getting really cold and I need full coverage outside I will wear these inside. I don’t know about you, but my hands get so cold when I am at the computer in the winter and with these I can still type.
Luckily hand warmers are pretty fast to knit, which is always nice because you can feel like you have actually accomplished something in a fairly short time. I have made so many of these fingerless gloves over the years, I can now just knit the body with out a pattern and then customize them with interesting cable patterns that I come across, like this one from a sock pattern. These are made with Debbie Bliss Cashmerino, which is so soft, I am very sensitive to prickly wool and these feels wonderful on.
