Wrist warmers

It's getting to the colder time of year when wrist warmers and ankle warmers are useful accessories to wear around the house before getting to the stage when you absolutely need to put the heating on.

I dug out some old worn out socks, cut off the feet and made these wrist warmers.

They fit over the cuff of a long sleeved t-shirt and then fit under the cuffs of a jumper and stop the draughts getting up my arms! I also made a pair of matching ankle warmers from a slightly larger pair of worn out socks.

Meanwhile, I've just added a new bracelet to the Crafty Green Poet Etsy shop..... Please feel free to pop over and have a look!

Wrist warmers are a great idea, cos you can take them off when doing things like washing up, rather than having to roll up long sleeves. I could do with a nose warmer today! :)

Warmers are great ideas. I think I'll make some for myself. They'll keep out cool air when I'm sitting writing. Thanks for the suggestions.

What a great idea! You've inspired me to repurpose a pair of old socks into replacements for the frayed wrists on a winter work coat.

Recycling -- our ancestors always embraced this concept.

Cheers for the neat tips!
