Funky Vintage Hand Warmers

They are done!!

It is hard to get the real sense of the color: they are a warm brown with flecks of green, gold, red, blue and yetllow.

I used an Australian Merino and #4 circulars.

Knew Knob

Here is one of Aunt Ethel's hand warmers. I know it is not feminine looking, but she likes earthy colors and has big hands, so I think she will like it just fine.

Here is the cabinet complete with the knob. Yippee!! Finished at last.

Stash Start

Here is the start of my stash.
I am still waiting for the knob to arrive but thought I would put (most) of the yarn in the cabinet anyway.

Finish Almost Finished

Here is the finish on my stash cabinet. I just need to wait for the finish to harden. I used 2 coats of an oil based stain and then 2 coats of an antique oil finish. I am hoping it will be ready to put back together tomorrow.

I thought about lining the back and/or sides with cedar but realized I would have to cut the shelves to fit so I nixed the cedar liner this week.

Monday Madness

The ever-pooling socks are done. At least the cuffs match well enough. But I think I'll try a solid color next time and go for some texture.

Today is lovely - sunny and breezy. Hopefully we can get some cool to go with it. Sometime before February would be nice.
