Handwarmers!

I love handwarmers.  Fingerless gloves.  Wristwarmers.  I wear them all winter for driving, for working outside, for typing in my sometimes cold studio. . .

I used to buy them.  Then I learned to crochet, and everyone I knew got fingerless gloves for Christmas.  (Sorry, family!)

Now, I’m felting them.  BECAUSE I CAN.  🙂   One nice thing about the felted handwarmers is that they are more durable for tougher tasks, like bringing in firewood for a nice winter’s fire, but are still cozy and warm.

Apparently I’m not the only one that likes them, because I sold out of them at my last show!  Next, I’m thinking about mittens. . . .since felt is water-resistant, they might be good for making snowballs this winter. . . . .what do you think?
