I have finished my snood and seem to have a lot of knitting time on my hands now that the evenings are drawing in. Which is as good an excuse as any to snuggle on the sofa with a cup of coffee, knitting needles and yarn at the ready, a good TV programme on, what more do you need for a great night in.
I seem to have gone a bit mad on knitting wrist/ hand warmers. I think they are so useful and quick and easy to make. I started off with a green pair using some extra fine merino wool from my stash, and followed a lacy pattern which I had found in a sublime knitting pattern book. They were lovely to make but took a while as the pattern had quite a few rows to it - so not something you could easily do whilst watching TV.
Then I had an experiment with some soft chunky wool and did my own thing using garter stitch, the third pair I experimented with a rib stitch - I think the rib ones are my favourite and so easy.
