Handwarmers

Here are the handwarmers for Ms. Connelly! Aren't they cute? Very easy to do on straight needles then sewn together. You can find the pattern here if you'd like to make them also. I used my favorite Pastaza which was leftover from my sister's hat. Didn't even take a full cake and, actually, I could probably make another pair. My son, Glenn, is the hand model here and he liked them so much he asked for a pair! I think that's only the second thing he's asked me to make for him thus far. The other was a beanie. Which I made. Which he then lost. Boys. Sigh.
See how freckley he is? I love his freckles. He doesn't. I hope he doesn't read this because he'll make me take that down. Just like he made me take down his picture on my Facebook page of him in the bathtub with his brother when he was three years old. He said it embarrassed him. He has no idea that the embarrassment has just begun! Muhahahaha

Oh and for your funny bone:

Thank you NatalieDee for making me laugh every day!

Thanks for the laugh. One of my few joys in life is embarrasing my boys, aged 13 and 14.
