Project Updates – Handwarmers

Most of you know how I struggle in the cold with hands turning blue… (“two by two; hands of blue”. With my new-found hobby, I decided to make a few more things that might help keep me warm. The scarf is obviously doing a bang-up job, so I decided to work on a pair of hand warmers…

One hand warmer... seeks partner to warm hands of wearer.

It’s largely being improvised, and was mostly an excuse to use double-pointed needles. I had a simmilarly styled ball of wool to make the left hand, but having thought about it a bit more, a matching pair makes more sense (so I’ve got a bit more on order…). The only problem with this one is that I’ve made the thumb-hole a bit too big (I’m calling in on some friends to get some advice on how to address that…)

After that, it’s on to make a hat that actually fits…

    Have you considered the use of http://www.says-it.com/achievement/xbox.php or similar in order to make “achievement” buttons for yourself?

    Nice project, BTW.
