Hand Warmers – Part 2

image

This is my second post about hand warmers. After knitting my last pair, I decided to try out three new designs. One is grey, another is orange and yellow patterned, and another is an ivory color with eyelet stitches.

I like to knit hand warmers because I don’t need much yarn to make a pair and it only takes a few hours to make.  Once I decide the design, I can knit hand warmers in various colors.

I especially like the off white colour because it gives the essence the snow.

Teal Blue Hand Warmer

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.
