I recently set up an Etsy store. YES!!, I did it. Another first for me. The cupboard is still bare so no link for you yet, but I have been a crocheting fool, working at perfecting my hand warmers. I've been working with several simple patterns, following the directions, taking the results apart and putting them back together again, and generally discovering the yarns I most enjoy working with as well as the hook size.
I've been worrying over variations in hand size so have been enlisting my friends to be hand models. Biene is my size small and it looks as though chaining 28 sts for a foundation with a G or H hook works for a small. Thirty is good for medium. Krista is my medium model. A 32 st base is good for large hands. I'm keeping track of the yarn type and weight and hook size of each warmer and writing the information on a piece of paper to tuck into one glove of each pair.
I'm pretty much going on a wing and a prayer, as I approach the organizing and understand of the craft, with quite a lot of trial and error mixed in. But it seems to be coming together. And why, you may ask, is she producing hand warmers now that spring and summer are approaching? Well, that may be but as close as I can tell, it is always winter somewhere on the planetand no one knows that better than we blogging friends do. Right?
