From France, enfin!

This past June I visited my sister in France. You may remember that I took her and her husband each a pair of wristers made from Malabrigo Sock Yarn. Last year they lived in a gorgeous - but drafty - house, and were bundled up from head to toe each day (inside the house.) I thought the wristers would come in handy this year, since they keep your hands warm but leave your fingers free. I mean, everybody needs a pair or two. Don't they?

Unfortunately, it was about 95 degrees when I gave them to her, so the wristers were packed away until just recently. And they have moved, and this place should be warmer, so I'm not sure she will be living in the wristers.


I keep asking her if she's been able to wear them yet, since I've been wearing mine for several weeks now. She finally emailed yesterday, and the wristers are on!

Ma trés belle soeur,

After two days of torrential rains and vents violents in southern France, temperatures dropped low enough to finally turn on the heat and don these mitties. They are p a r f a i t, especially for working with a cold metallic macbook first thing in the morn. Thanks so much for knitting these for me, Jill! Tomorrow I may wear them on the morning jog.

Je les aime et je t'aime.

Awesome Kristin! Now I just need you to start wearing the Citron scarf that I gave you in July!

I also love mine, Jill—they are and make a perfect gift. I don't look forward to the chilly temps but I do look forward to wearing them. I'll send you a pic too—I want to famous like Kristin!
Kristin's husband,
