Wordless Wednesday?

Not much to talk about tonight. 
Oh yeah. Rain.

And my windshield wipers crapped out.

If you've never seen Kathleen Madigan, look up her clips.  I caught one of her videos on netflix and was repeating this bit afterward.  Love doing Oirish accents meself.

Of Horrible Timing & Snuggly Things

We're past the first week of May and I'm listing handwarmers.

It's the best way to put to use all the wool and blends I have in these here yarn baskets.
There are a couple designs, all knit from awesome yarn.  Let me introduce you:

 Neon Candy Striper
 wool & acrylic
Ribbing contours to your hand
while bobbles give it some visual

Funky blend of vermillion
and green, with bright
almost neon strands
wound around subtler,
color changing yarn.
 wool & silk

"Bronzino" was the name that popped into my head for them- inspired by the Italian painter of elongated, graceful gestures.
 Nomad in lush green
 merino wool & silk

Deep, slightly changing greens.
Split on either side of your wrist.
Not too long, giving your fingers freedom
to move!
 merino wool & silk
 Bibbety Bobbity Boo

wool & silk

Knit from a funky blend of wool & silk in turquoise, lilac, green & brown.

Eye-catching colors
Comfortable ribbing
Bobbles down hand
These go up your fingers a bit, and I
knit up around the thumb to keep
it warm too.
