Warm Hands and Warm Hearts

As many of you know I am a medical transcriptionist. I sit at my computer in the cold, dark basement trying to peck out a living typing radiology reports. Well, it is COLD down there. Even in the heart of summer I am freezing and my fingers start to cramp up from the cold and sometimes I have to sit on them for a while to get the feeling back into them before I can proceed. Now, this is not a whining/venting post. This is another show off post of what I knit to remedy the problem. Fingerless gloves.


These are knit using Malabrigo sock yarn. I am obsessed with Malabrigo and their sock yarn is worth being obsessed about. I even have actual socks in the works using this yarn, but that is for another day.

The colorway is called archangel and it actually changes colors in different lights. The pattern is Fingerless Mitts with Cables by Helene Wallin.

They are fast and fun and look great with my lilac bush. :)



  1. WOW J!! Is there anything you can't make?

  2. I can't seem to do an afghan. I have one 4 inches along and it has been that way for over a year. I have a short attention span and can only concentrate on the small projects.

  3. Spudknit, those are gorgeous! Love, love, love them!
