My hands are always cold in winter. We keep our house pretty cool, and here in my office my desk is right in front of a sliding glass door. Yes, it’s thermal. But my hands still get cold. So I decided to knit myself a pair of handwarmers.
I went to Designer Yarn and got some pure alpaca for warmth. I got the pattern from Sherrie; I liked it because I didn’t want the warmer to go up my thumb since I’m at the computer so much.
I also decided to put beads at the top like Sherrie did. And I worked fast on them and am very pleased with the results. And my hands are warm!
I used size 8 beads and a teeny crochet hook to pull the yarn through the beads. I didn’t want to bother with stringing the beads onto the yarn, so dropped the stitch off, then pulled the yarn through. I like that method!
Now if only I could find them!
Next day: I wen find um!
I’ve had requests to show photos of the handwarmers on my hands, so hea u go!
I’m glad I found ’em… it’s really cold today!
