Day 10

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?!
