Looking about for a gift for my brother’s birthday this coming week. He’s very anti things, so there will be a gift certificate involved. I also started thinking about how cold my hands get whilst on the computer all day and thought maybe he felt the same.

I located some great free patterns for fingerless mitts online, including this one from Canadian Living. And of course I did not have appropriate yarn, so it involved yet another trip to the yarn shop. That makes three days in a row, once during a snowstorm and 10 degree weather; good thing I took them treats for the holidays or they’d be sick of me. Picked out Cash Vero DK number 029, a deep, rich gray. Once knit, these wristwarmers do look small, but they stretch to fit just fine due to the ribbing.

Wrist Warmers for Brother


Made these fingerless mitts while listening to the great Incarceron by Catherine Fisher. The fantasy/adventure/post-apo story seemed to match the Dickensian feel to these mitts. Highly recommend it.
