Two thumbs up on the thumb cozy…what’s new.

Two thumbs up on the thumb cozy…what have I been working on.  I have been receiving many requests for a thumb cover, lets call it a cozy.  These requests have been from people who have various hand, wrist and thumb issues to those who just like the look and extra warmth.  I had so many requests that I just had to sit down and figure this design out.  I wanted to be able to add the thumb cozy to any of my hand warmers for the convenience of my customers and myself.  Thus the crochet thumb cozy was born after a few trial runs and some tweaking so it would fit on both a knitted or crochet hand warmer.  The Urban Lace fingerless glove is the

crochet version where I made a more casual style that is available in most colours on my Etsy site.  This shows a few of the colours available.  You can see more about this style here:  https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/164670173/urban-lace-fingerless-gloves-hand?ref=listing-shop-header-2

The Ashley Fingerless glove is also available in various colours and is the knitted version with the added crocheted thumb cozy.  I love being given a challenge and figuring out a way to be successful or sometimes not successful as you still learn from trying it and to me that too is success.

The hand warmer below this one is the Klohe fingerless glove.  I designed this one for a client who has a circulatory issue and need a full thumb cozy with the option of taking it off when needed.

Added a little embellishment to finish this one off.  All of these designs are either done in hand painted merino wool or merino wool.   This is a wonderful soft yarn that is gentle to your hands added additional kindness to your skin.  I give the thumb cozy a two thumbs up and thank the clients who inspired me.
