Spring Chill Wrist Warmers

It's finally spring and you can wear all the tank tops and shorts you want, except for that pesky windchill. These Spring Chill Wrist Warmers will help keep your hands toasty while you work on the computer, or even while you knit! The deep blue color is attractive on anyone, and the alpaca wool is soft on the hands. Fingerless gloves should be in everyone's basic knitting repertoire, as they're a lot more useful than they look. Try gifting some to that perpetually cold person you know so they can enjoy the spring like you are.
