This is a pattern I acquired somewhere along the way in my knitting life. I think I got the printout in a stash swap last winter, but I can’t be sure. Regardless of where it came from, I’m glad that it made it into my queue of projects. As a quick, stash-busting accessory, these handwarmers can’t be beat. I knit these up in an hour or so each.
- Pattern: Waffle Stitch Fingerless Gloves by Jill Toporkiewicz (Ravelled here)
- Yarn: Malabrigo Merino Worsted in Amaroso, about 50 yards
- Needles: US Size 7/4.5mm
- Mods: None. Next time I might try knitting them in the round so that I can make a thumb and avoid seaming!
This yarn had already been knit into a finished object once. Then, after I had never worn the neckwarmer, I decided to frog it for the yarn. Malabrigo is too lovely a yarn to let sit in a stagnant finished object! I think I’ll get much more use out of these handwarmers, and I still have plenty of yarn left to see about a matching hat.
Why is it that when I use the self timer on my camera, it insists on focusing on the background instead of the lovely knitting?!
