Winter knitting

Winter has finally arrived, after battling its way through the unseasonable crazy-warm temperatures we’ve been having for the last couple of months. If you want to do some cold-weather knitting, but are tired of simple hats and scarves, nervous about thumbs for mittens and gloves, and reluctant to commit to a big sweater, then wrist warmers (a.k.a. fingerless gloves with holes for your thumbs to stick out) might be just the ticket. Here’s a handy-dandy page that generates a pattern for you when you type in your wrist circumference, gauge, and needle size. This could be a great way to use up some stash yarn!

And if you’re saying to yourself, “Hey! I want to knit more hats! And I have no fear of thumbs!” then this may be the pattern for you.

    I just got approval from a pair I made for the 18-yr-old brother, the arbiter of all coolness, so it’s official that fingerless gloves are hip. And handy whilst typing during this so-called Arctic Blast in CA (though it sounds more like a name for a smoothie if you ask me)! The hat is too funny!

    the glove is cool. a nice blue one (of course) would help this person keep her fingers warm. Hint!
