Slip Stitch Hand Warmers "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

Texting while you walk your dog, searching the bottom of your bag for keys, catching up on emails in an under-heated caf all these things are better with warm hands and free fingertips. And this comely pair of Slip Stitch Hand Warmers makes these little daily tasks better!

Slip Stitch Hand Warmers | Purl Soho

In traditional Good Wool, the latest addition to our family of yarns, this super simple slip stitch pattern is reminiscent of a classic thermal shirt. And the natural beauty this yarn lends to these hand warmers makes them just as amenable to a walk in the woods as to a morning subway ride.

Slip Stitch Hand Warmers | Purl Soho

You just need one skein of Good Wool to make one or two adult-size pairs, and since this yarn is our most affordable yet, casting on will hardly put a dent in your wallet. And who wouldnt warm to that?

Designed for Purl Soho by Jake Canton.

Materials

NOTE: One skein is plenty to make two pairs of Small Hand Warmers; just enough to make two pairs of Medium Hand Warmers; or plenty to make one pair of Large.

Make 1 Purlwise (m1p) "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

Make 1 Purlwise (m1p) is a very useful technique when youre increasing on the purl side of the fabric. By simply purling into the front loop versus the back loop, m1p leans right or left on the knit side of the fabric, imitating the look of the usual knitwise m1R (make 1 right) and m1L (make 1 left). (M1L purlwise looks like m1L on the knitside and m1R purlwise looks like M1R on the knit side.)

On the purl side of the fabric, the left and right m1p look identical, so if the purl side is the right side of your fabric, choose either one!

m1L purlwise (make one left purlwise, worked on the wrong side): With the left needle, pick up the horizontal strand between the last stitch you knit and the one youre about to knit, bringing the needle from front to back, then purl through back loop of the strand. This makes a left-leaning increase on the right, or knit, side of the fabric.

m1R purlwise (make one right purlwise, worked on the wrong side): With the left needle, pick up the horizontal strand between the last stitch you knit and the one youre about to knit, bringing the needle from back to front, then purl through front loop of the strand. This makes a right-leaning increase on the right, or knit, side of the fabric.

Sprouting "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

 
 
Snowdrops, primroses, wild violets... They have all sprouted tricked by the fair weather tickling their seeds, caressing their stems, kissing their fragile petals.
 
Wishing for snow and seeing that it is not going to happen this year, I succumbed to the realization that spring is inevitably on its way.
 
My mind switched into a different mode and this is the result of it. I chose this lovely, used vintage fabric that was a skirt in its previous life, to make a mixed media necklace that is part of the Victorian collection I am slowly enlarging.
 
With this I bid you farewell and wish you all a perfect weekend!

Thrift Stalking "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

I take thrifting very seriously. If thrifting were an olympic sport, I would win the gold medal every time.

Thrifting is not a game. Thrifting is not just fun. Thrifting is a sport, not a strawberry social, yall.

To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything Julie Newmar is on Netflix right now, btw.

Yesterday, my thrifting savagery reached a level Im not entirely proud of.

Let me explain. I popped into Goodwill and was browsing, like ya do. I was going through the handbags when  a lady to my left who was chatting on her phone said, Oh wow. I just found the weirdest thing. Its a vintage Dooney & Bourke suitcase thing!

No. Oh no you did not, I thought, my eyes narrowing to slits.

I kept my breathing slow and calm, but inside, I was more like
