Toasty soft handwarmers

With the instant arrival of fall and obvious signs of winter I have been finishing up projects started last year and thinking about new ones. I like to have a lot of hand warmers around because when the weather starts getting really cold and I need full coverage outside I will wear these inside. I don't know about you, but my hands get so cold when I am at the computer in the winter and with these I can still type.

Luckily hand warmers are pretty fast to knit, which is always nice because you can feel like you have actually accomplished something in a fairly short time. I have made so many of these fingerless gloves over the years, I can now just knit the body with out a pattern and then customize them with interesting cable patterns that I come across, like this one from a sock pattern. These are made with Debbie Bliss Cashmerino, which is so soft, I am very sensitive to prickly wool and these feels wonderful on.


  1. Love them! You inspire the heck out of me - now to find a good pattern for the Cashmerino - I'm not talented like you.

  2. love these--i need some, cos my fingers freeze all the time in winter, too. now i just need to learn how to knit.. . .

    Your mitts are lovely and DB cashmerino is great. Have fun in Houston. Wish I were going.

  4. I think they are wonderful! I think the hardest part of the hypo-thyroidism is the intolernace to cold!
