warm fuzzies

In light of the chilly weather (shut up! Fifty degrees is so chilly!), I'm getting out all of my warm fuzzy things. The Best Roommate Ever and I are trying to hold off turning on our heat as long as possible, because we are very very cheap and also broke. I love pulling out the warm fuzzy things that I haven't seen for six or eight months. It's like getting new clothes. Or maybe I just have a short memory.


A pair of armwarmers I designed myself. They're made in a 1x1 rib from SWTC Karaoke in two self-striping colorways, with two strands held together so that the colorways shift around each other. If that makes any sense. Much like the Child's Rainbow Scarf from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts; in fact, that's where I got the idea. (I think the colors are 278 Mermaid Mix and 280 Wild Cherry.)



Another pair of armwarmers, Fetching, this time, from Knitty. I have poor circulation, so my hands and feet are always cold; hence, many armwarmers.
Then we have one of my favorites: Fuzzy Feet! Sing it with me! "Fuzzy feet! I got those fuzzy feet!" Much like happy feet, although not quite so active. This was the very first sock pattern I ever made and I would totally recommend it to anyone who wants to learn to make socks. Very easy to follow, the gauge is huge so they go so fast, and if you screw up, who cares? As long as they're vaguely sock-like, once they're felted, no one will ever know.


Pre-felting.

Post-felting.

Fuzzy feet make feet warm. Happy autumn!

How funny. I was hunting up my Fuzzy Feet last night and wishing for my fingerless mittens today on my walk. Love all three of yours!
