When the colored leaves begin to fall, I know that the hand warmer season has begun. Unlike structured gloves or mittens, the hand warmer allows for more flexibility. Without taking them off, I can pay a cashier using my credit card or pick up the bills and coins from my wallet. I can type on the laptop in my office until the heater works enough for me to feel warm. I can wander through the book store looking for a book and flip through the pages.
I made this pair of simple design hand warmers with 100% Peruvian Highland Wool. I also accented them with small crocheted flowers. I love the color of teal or ocean blue color of the yarn and I was instantly drawn to the yarn when I entered the store.
I made another pair of hand warmers of the same design, alternating a green and blue color.
Of course, I also wear the hand warmers when I take Cocoa and Haru on walks.
I love hand warmers, and for me, they are an essential for the wintertime.
