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!
