I've finally finished the pattern for these plain hand warmers. I really wanted some plain ones, that I could easily add designs to. Hence the "blank slate". I've actually only finished one hand warmer so far. I will do the other one eventually, but I'm a bit over knitting after the drama of figuring out which bind off to use. In the end, I settled on this one http://www.socknitters.com/Tips/stretchy.htm
. It has just the right amount of stretch.
The shaping is really simple - just a thumb gusset.
It's summer down here in NZ, so who knows why I'm knitting hand warmers. I guess I'll be well prepared for next winter!
I'm happy to write up the pattern if anyone wants it... I'd do it now, but I'm hanging out for lazy afternoon nap
