Warm Hands will give you a warm ...

heart and fingers. Really.

Honestly, unless it's way below zero when you have your hands covered in wool or alpaca the warmth will extend into your fingers. Even if they're not completely covered. Such as when you wear Fingerless Mitts, Wristwarmers, or Armwarmers  ... or whatever you might know them to be called. I for one; absolutely LOVE them! I wear them all through the Fall, Winter and Spring. And if it's cold inside they get slipped on rather than putting up the heat and burning the oil. Yup, warm hands will help to make me warm all over.

Completed more Chtistmas gifts ...

And more than one pair of Manly Fingerless Mitts. Two in the pattern:
Men's Fingerless Mitts by Kathy North from Piece by Piece and  Intercostal Mitts by Joseph Reinert from Zephyr's Patterns. One for a 13 year old grandson and the other two for college age grandsons. Now I need to make a pair for the DH. He has his eye on some blue yarn. Navy blue.
And then there are a few that I'm still working on ...

What is the book on the first photograph, knitty and a snowman.

Intriguing.

Love all the mits by the way.

OH my Knitty Kitty has fallen into my basket, its only really available from the US, so it might take a while to get here.

Hello Rhonda, you really are the fingerless mitt expert! They make great gifts don't they. Thanks for the Rav link to Beanstalks as I am looking for a small item to make while travelling at Christmas. Have just joined your site.

Greetings from sunny Sydney
