Warm hands, warm heart

So, I fell off the knitting handspun wagon a bit in Aotearoa and I have been itching to cast on.

I couldn’t wait and chose these aluminium dpns because I enjoy them in their shiny blueness so much.  Then I, umm, free associated a pattern for some hand warmers. I realised when I reached the thumb gusset that I had given away the book I consulted last time I created a thumb gusset.

Pretty quickly, here I am at the train station knitting a thumb gusset anyway. Then, onto the second!

Some small crimes were committed in knitting the second and I had to rip it back and go again… so here is the second on a train..

And here they are ready for a short walk round to their new home.

Plain but stretchy and delightfully warm.
