Knitting - hand warmers

One done, one to go.

They are really nice (if I do say so myself!)

I used Garnstudio's Drops Silke-Tweed (5ply) and this pattern.

These are for a gift, but I want a pair too! So... I found this pattern (Kumara) which uses aran weight yarn which should make it a quicker knit...

still alive

I am still here... just not making anything... I'm not even compiling any crafty lists (unless you count Big Girl's Christmas list)...

I've been busy with this and this and something else which I'll talk about later...

Big Girl has been far more creative than me recently...



hopefully have some more arty crafty things (by me!) at some point....
