sock it to me baby!

I know its my Friday b-r-e-a-t-h-e moment, however that was this morning.  
and now is now (8.45pm Friday evening).  It's a long time since my 'take a moment', and besides I am so excited I just HAVE to share.  

Fingers cold and stiff, current gloves too cumbersome and slows down my typing big time, so frustrating I ended up just not bothering to try and keep my fingers warm whilst typing my assignment today.

Study break from the cold depths of the cold part of the house, 
to the warm end of the house to thaw out and fold washing, 
*sniff* a fave pair of my socks, almost on their 'last leg' - will be sad to say goodbye to these. . . . . . . 

as I turned them in the right way, possibly for the last time, I stopped. . . . . . 


I grabbed my scissors. . . . . . . . 


I opened up my machine and set the stitch to zig zag and I stitched around where I had cut. . . . . . . . .


within about 2 minuties - *pffffft* cold hands - Not I says Joyce!  


 oh my wrists just loves these, they are so so soft and so so warm.  I can type faster than the leaves scuttling up the street in the howling wind, I can roll them back when I hang the next lot of washing, I can look at the flowers that now adorn my wrist and I can smile.

Hello sock hands, how are you today?

neat idea, especially since my hands always freeze at the computer.
my sister has been knitting these hand/ pulse warmers but this version here is definitely more up my alley!! thanks for the tip!
