30x30 Project: Knit Bowtie Hand Warmers (Cotton)
Never had 'em, but cold hands that's another story. Nothing that knitting needles and yarn couldn't tackle.
Part I: The Process
The yarn for these little lovelies was from a gifted package from the good folks at Kollabora. Way back in 2012. For those keeping count - the yarn has followed me to three towns and two states. And I knew I would get to making something ... eventually.
Fast forward four years - and the first project is complete. I have plans for another project - and hope to get to it before 2020.
Knitting separated by periods of intense sewing = me youtube-ing my favorite techniques again and again. For this project, two at time circular needles and the magic loop did the trick.
I love, love, love magic loop.
Part II: The Reveal
Overall, I am happy with these little hand warmers. The bow, which was knit separately and then sewn on, will sometimes position itself in an awkward position, but it's still cute and worth a little tugging.
Part III: The Verdict
Yep. But, first I have to finish up this here 30x30.
The thumb was a little tricky - I really wanted the tip to get tight. I succeeded in my quest, but am now unsure why that was so important ...
I might play around with attaching the bow with another color.
