5 years ago, I made my friend's daughter a pair of handwarmers and apparently she's worn them out. Now in middle school she wore them over at dinner the other night, far too tiny for my little friend.
I told her I'd make her a new pair for the new year and asked her for her preferred color choices. She asked for yellow because it's a fun color and it goes so nicely with white. It's another pair in acrylic, for that middle school after school snacking and washing. Also the colors were right in front of my face at the yarn store.
These are more of a slouchy, relaxed style. I thought I'd switch it up a bit. Hope she likes em.
This was my third pair in the past 2 weeks and I have to say, I am completely enjoying my mass handwarmer knit.
I have another pair for another friend on the needles and plan another pair in a bulky weight yarn for my other friend's mom in time for Lunar New Year. Much like socks, the handwarmers are good projects for "to-go" knitting.
I am definitely going into 2018 feeling my knitting mojo. After my small pieces are done, I'm going back to sweaters and socks. Mainly to move the large stash set aside for specific projects. It's a crafty form of decluttering ;)
I'm enjoying everyone's crafty new year fervor in the blogosphere. I hope the New Year finds you looking forward with as much positivity as one can muster.
