When I was a small child my parents kept our house very warm in the winter. I can remember never wearing a sweater or even slippers or socks on the coldest days. During the energy crisis of the late 70’s my parents lowered the temperature on the thermostat and it has stayed at the new lower temperature. The husband and I agreed that we would and should keep our thermostat down since it’s good for the environment and healthier. Recently we had a tank of oil delivered and to say we were shocked by the price is an understatement. We decided another few degrees lower wouldn’t hurt. While it’s warm enough to go though day to day activities, it gets darn chilly when we sit down at night to watch TV. My hands were particularly cold when I knit so these wristers were a necessity. This is the second time I knit this pattern and it is well written and a quick knit. The yarn, which is completely different in person, came from the Sisterhood of the Traveling Stash box. It’s bare Knitpicks fingering weight hand dyed in pink, green, blue, and purple. This is my first Knitpicks experience and I’m very pleased with the yarn. It’s squishy and soft. Whoever dyed it did a great job. The yarn didn’t pool or flash at all. I can see more Knitpicks yarn and wristers in my future.
*My attempt at a clever title. You can see why I don’t try for them more often.
