This Week's Big Project

I'm going to do something I've been meaning to do for ages, and actually write down and copy eit my handwarmer pattern. Brian's currently making me a pair from my handspun... On my needles... so maybe we're making me a pair! When he's done I'm going to start on a gold pair for my friend Jade and do a final edit, then post the pattern here.


It's a pretty basic pattern, but I've used it to make some other, more interesting pairs as well.


Like these ones, which were based on a pair me and Emma saw at Urban Outfitters, and didn't have $45 for. The cable turned out entirely different, since I made this one up for the project, but the colour is pretty close. I also like them better, since the ones we saw didn't have a thumb gusset!


These ones are also pretty heavily cabled, and are 2 strands of worsted held together and knit on 6mm needles. Peter promptly felted these in the wash, and is now only ever given superwash or pre-felted items.

And soon he can just make his own...
