Creative Warmth

I was so bloody creative this weekend. Yay.

I finished my sari-silk wrist-warmers this weekend. And spent Sunday wearing them because it was a freakin’ -40° C outside Sunday morning.

And then I wore them at work today. And one of the PMs admired them, calling them ‘hardcore’.

It’s a modification of

Now, I have three more balls of sari-silk, but they’re all kind of different tones. I’ve been kind of torn. Do I want leg-warmers? Or do I want to knit them all into a little vest. I’m thinking preppy, scoop-necked, the kind of thing you’d wear over a white shirt. But colorful and fuzzy. Whatever I do, I’ll have to stripe it to make up for the non-matchingness of the combined yarns.

See actually, this picture does a better job of showing how the colors change:

And that’s all within one ball. The other balls are quite different – one is slightly red, one is kind of peachy and one is kind of turquoisey, as much as any of them can be categorized in one color.

  1. Those look so great!!! That’s awesome yarny stuff! I dig.

    I bought some wrist warmers last winter so I could actually work with un-central-heated houses in NZ. (I don’t know how to knit.)

    If you want my opinion, for the next project go with leg warmers. They’re not retro – they’re necessary.

    Nice.. Much nicer than my cutoff socks that I use in my basement home office where my wrists get sore if they are a little chilly.
