Last spring, just in time for warm weather, I finished a very warm winter sweater I dubbed my Cushy/Cozy Sweater. I then had to wait four months (short summers, long winters) for it to get cold enough to wear it. Now, this may seem a bit bass-works but it turned out to be a brilliant way for me to not dread winter quite so much. So this spring I’m on a hand-warmer knitting roll.
A pair to wear with my cushy/cozy sweater next winter! It’s the same lovely yarn; Araunania Azapa 30% alpaca, 45% merino, 15% silk, and 10% donegal.
At about 12-1/2 stitches over 4 inches, a very quick knit!
Then you have to have some just for fun! Ages ago I knit some raggedy ruffled hand-warmers from some leftover bits of (mostly) worsted weight yarns and they turned out very cute and fun to wear.
I decided I needed another pair in leftover odd bits of sock yarn.
I have nearly worn these out already as they just make me feel happy to wear them 🙂
So, here we are, marching into spring and warm weather with winter wearables just new off the needles. But that’s me, the queen of good timing 😉
