Cold Hands, Warm Heart

I don't know about you but my hands have been Freezing over the past few weeks.
This has prompted me to search for nice patterns for hand warmers. Although I like the idea of a full glove, they prove to be unpractical and I hate the loss of dexterity that comes with having the ends of your fingers covered.
So for me the perfect solution is market gloves, hand warmers or fingerless gloves.
I found these crocheted beauties on Etsy, made by the lovely Salina.

You can find more lovely things made by Salina on her blog Salina's Home Journal. I just love the cotton lace trim so much.

Thank you Salina. They are so comfortable, warm and most importantly pretty.

There is a saying that goes "Cold hands , Warm Heart" so to prove this true I've decided to have my first Give Away.

While searching for pretty patterns I have been tinkering with my own and have come up with these.

Please excuse the dodgy nail painting, nail art is unfortunately not my forte. I must get M trained up in the art of manicure.
If you leave a comment to this post with a link or copy of your favourite soup recipe before the 1st of February, I will enter you into the draw to win a pair of these hand warmers. You can choose the colour.
Good Luck.

Hello Cele, here is my response to your comment you left for me over at my blog:

'Cele, hope your shoulder is feeling better. Yes, of course it is ok for you to do a post that links to my blog.:) I tried to comment on that post too but for some reason it didn't work. I will try again. I have a perfect soup recipe too but first I have to go looking for it.:)'

What an awesome job you did you your fingerless gloves/wristlets. Still haven't found that soup recipe but as soon as I do I will be back here to post it.:)
Have a great day!
