Cold hands, warm heart


I am not a hand model, my hands will never be mistaken for a hand models. My hands are just like a slightly smaller version of my dads hands (I liked my dad's hands). I have made several pairs of fingerless gloves, or hand warmers, or whatever you wish to call them. But, I've never made myself a pair. Finally I have decided that my hands are deserving of some fingerless gloves (and I'm hoping that with fingerless gloves I can knit, something I can't do with gloves on). Don't mind the errant strands of yarn, I've not gotten around to weaving in the ends, I'll do that when I finish the other glove, which is on my needles at the moment. The bowl in the picture is from tonights empty bowl supper. I stood in line chatting and knitting and this is one of the bowls I picked. Chris and the kids didn't get to the school where they were having the supper in time so I got to pick out 4 bowls (Robert took his ticket and got to pick his own bowl).

Your hand warmers / fingerless gloves are adorable! But do they REALLY keep ones hands warm? I'm tempted to try a pair, but I wonder how well they actually "warm".

I've been curious too as to whether or not they keep your hands warm. I made a pair a few years ago for the husband and he loves them, and my 7 year old son loves his. We'll see if I like mine!
