Colorblock Hand Warmers The sweet spot of knitting, for me, is when it starts to feel a lot like painting. When the form is fluid and mutable and when the palette is supple and free, then I feel that knitting really hits its creative stride. Creating these Colorblock Hand Warmers delivers just that kind of deeply satisfying experience. The idea behind these simple mitts was to give free rein to the gorgeous colors of Madeline Tosh Merino Light, to allow the spectacularly hand dyed palette to speak its own story and to create its own beauty: from moonlight gray to buttery yellow to bronzed apricot to blazing tangerine.
Whit's Knits: Hand Warmers and Flip Top Mittens Since making the Cashmere Fingerless Gloves, we've had lots of requests for slight pattern alternatives. I agree that no one pattern can answer all of our hand-warming needs, so I came up with a couple of variations on the original theme: Hand Warmers and Flip Top Mittens. The Hand Warmers eliminate the challenge of knitting the fingers without sacrificing the elegance of the original pattern. And the Flip Top Mittens do the double duty of warming cold fingers on some days and liberating busy fingers on others. Both patterns still use only one skein of Jade Sapphire's amazing 6 ply cashmere and one skein of Blue Sky Alpaca's Sportweight Alpaca.

Bunty Mitts kits My Bunty Mitts design, originally published in Knit Now magazine issue 6, is now available as a Ravelry download and as a kit from my Etsy store. The kits include the pattern and yarn from Skein Queen in a cotton project bag. The kits are currently available in three different colourways: Chestnut and Carotene Moss and Cranberry Ribbed Hand Warmers If you're a careful reader of the Purl Bee, you may have noticed by now what a big fan I am of hand warmers. I love how practical they are (no holding dirty mittens between your teeth while you fish around for keys); I love how fast they are to make (you just can't say that about too many knitted things!); I love how flattering they are on everybody's hands; and, for all these reasons, I love how perfectly suitable they are as gifts (I'm remembering recent recipients: friend Claudia has a pair, so do aunt Bretta, cousin Katie, and sister-in-law Jen.). Ever since Joelle made the Log Cabin Baby Blanket for her new niece out of Anzula's Squishy, I have been really anxious to give it a try. Joelle is a tough customer when it comes to yarn, so her rave reviews of this one set my expectations high. I was not disappointed!
