I have a small problem, so I've come up with a small solution. The first thing I do in the mornings, after pouring a cup of coffee for myself, is log on to my computer. That's when the problem manifests itself; my right wrist gets really cold. Not just chilly, but bone-chillingly cold.
I've been wanting to make myself a cuff for a long time now, but have taken to wearing a fingerless glove without putting my hand in the hand part. Know what I mean? Well, I've been wearing it like a cuff. I don't like my palm covered while I'm on the computer because it interferes with mouse/trackball use. And we can't have that, can we?
Yesterday, I stopped by my LYS and picked up a couple of balls of Sandnes Alpakka, dk weight 100% alpaca. It's lovely stuff; couldn't stop fondling it in the store, so I knew it was coming home with me. It's a very simple pattern: cast on 48 stitches on 3 mm dpns, work k2, p2 rib for about 4", then about 1/2" in 1x1 rib and cast off. I've made one; I'm not sure I'll make a second, but it's probably a good idea, don't you think? My left wrist might get jealous.
And, you ask, does it keep my wrist warm? Oh yeah! As I'm typing, I can feel the warmth radiating inward and my entire body is getting warmer... oh wait, maybe that's just a hot flash.
On another note, I've been gifted with a ticket to the coast! On the 13th, I'll be getting on a bus and going to Abbotsford to visit my daughter. It's her way of ensuring that I get to meet Ethan (my newest grandson) before he's no longer a baby. I'll be there just for the weekend, but I'm excited!
