I was cruising through my (sadly, rather large) backlog of emails this morning, when I found a link to a pattern from Berroco… it’s a really very useful pattern for needle knitting… an ice pick glove! Now, you really must click on the link, so that you can see what I’m talking about, and then come right back here, K? Go on ahead… just don’t forget to come back for the punch line, K? 😉
Are you back now?? Did you get a good look? Cute idea, isn’t it? Let me show you something else that will be of the utmost interest to us loom knitters out there:
Doesn’t this little item from the Spa Set found in the Peggin’ Pages look just like it could be used as the same kind of thing?
Let me tell you as the maker of this little design that YES! It would be perfect for it!
All you would do is cinch the finger tip area up around the ice pick edge using a gathered bind off, rather than sealing it closed upon itself… couldn’t be easier!
What a great idea for a Christmas gift, right?
It’s so funny that this was in my email box today, because just a few days before, an idea popped into my head about this very same Bath Mitt. Actually the idea was inspired by the true life events of my friend GuppyGirl, who has been experiencing quite a few reasons lately in her household to have need of this little trick:
The only thing is that you can’t really use it straight on the skin… it’s just too cold, and it tends to condensate, leaving you all damp as well as cold, lol!
The answer?? Just slip this baby inside the Bath Mitt and then fill it with ice…voila! Ice bag cozy!
Just click right here to the Peggin’ Pages and scroll down until you see the Spa Set… it’s actually 3 patterns in one, and thus a very good deal. 😉
Have a wonderful weekend!
(I know I will: my family is making a journey to the pumpkin patch on Sunday…which is also my birthday! I just love birthdays, lol!)
