Grelčki za roke - Wrist warmers


Zima še kar nekaj opleta z repom, vsakih nekaj dni izpod neba nasuje nekaj belega pa mokrega pa mrzlega še zdaj v marcu. Če nam ni več za rokavice, pridejo prav grelčki. Ker so iz 100% volne, so prijetno topli in lepo grejejo roke, čeprav prsti niso pokriti. In lahko na cesti telefoniramo, se na sprehodu držimo za roke, na terasi kavarne pijemo kavico  - brez neprijetno mrzlih rok.
Winter has a long tail this year, sending something white and wet and chilly from the sky every now and then even in March. If you don't care for wearing gloves or mittens any more wrist warmers come in handy. Since they are made from 100% wool they are pleasantly warm, nicely keeping the hands warm although fingers are not covered. Making phone conversations in a street, holding hands on a chilly day or drinking a cup of coffee on a terrace becomes a pleasant experience, with no cold hands whatsoever.


Grelčki ne segajo visoko čez prste, da nas ne ovirajo. Da pa ne bi bili členki prstov izpostavljeni hladu, sem na hrbtni strani dodala dve vrsti in je ta stran malo višja. 
The wrist warmers do not extent high over the fingers. To avoid exposing knuckles to cold I made two additional rows on the back so this side is slightly higher.

Seveda sem uporabljeno volno pobarvala z rastlinami. A ker je tega že nekaj časa, lahko samo ugibam - lučnik za zeleno, neka izčrpana barvilna tekočina za drap, rumenkasto zelena pa verjetno šentjanževka.
Of course, I'd dyed the wool I used with plants. But this was some time ago so I have to guess: green should be from mullein, beige from some exhausted dye bath and greenish-yellow from St. John's wort.

They are nice. The extra rows for the exposed knuckles is a great idea. I hate cold fingers and wearing gloves ;) Time to knit some knuckle warmers.

Yes, KNUCKLE WARMERS is what they are! I don't care for the wrists, they are covered by the warm sleeves and protected from cold more or less. The knuckles are exposed and I develop rough skin on knuckles, mainly in winters that are not extremely cold, not enough for me to wear gloves. I'll wear knuckle warmers next winter :)
