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

Stretch-to-fit!

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.
