It’s cold in Berlin (-7°C / 20°F this morning) and I am back to knitting accessories: wrist warmers, socks, cowls, hats. The heating went off over the weekend and we were ever so grateful for the stove. (No warm water though … shiver …).
With cold wrists I easily turn from nice to mean – sort of my “Achilles’ heel.” Hence, wrist warmers have become a matter of course with me for at least six months per year.
The first pair is made of bits and pieces of yarn I had in stash and they turned out surprisingly thick and soft. Actually, they look a lot nicer in reality than in the picture. I would like to take another but have already sent them to a former colleague. Well, that’s that …
Then, I read a blog post the other day about mittens with different colored thumbs. A grandmother made those for her granddaughter when the latter was a child. That way the little girl could distinguish left and right. What a cute thing to do. I will add the link as soon as I find it again. However, it inspired me to finish wrist warmers in different colors.
What do you knit when you’re cold?
