Clickety-Clack Go My Knitting Needles

I've decided I have knitting ADD.  I don't know how I'll ever cope doing items larger than baby things because I can't even finish those without a break in between!  The vest I'm making for Claire's bubs is just adorable, but I felt I needed a break and decided to work on my dear friend, Juliette's (slightly belated) birthday pressie.  She's so sweet - she told me last week that she was excited to get something handknit from me, because it's been such a long time since she's received any handknit pressies. 

I wanted to try something different, so I found this pattern for handwarmers and thought I'd give it a go.  The weather is starting to get colder and I wasn't sure if I was ready to try knitting anything with fingers, so a pair of handwarmers it was.  It was surprisingly easy and I enjoyed learning a couple of new techniques, which will be fairly useful in other patterns.  I really like how the wool has made them the inverse of each other.  I'll just pretend like I planned that. 

I'm hedging my bets and hoping Juliette doesn't come online before I see her tomorrow! 

I think I'm going to have to make a pair for myself, because I really enjoyed modeling these and they kept my hands cozy and warm!

I'm totally okay with that! I'm secure in myself and can endure a bit of ribbing. :)

Love you too! x
