Remember when I told you about LanaMundi Yarn’s Silverspun? It’s a really cool cotton and lycra yarn that’s blended with silver threads, which are not only thought to be helpful for blood circulation but is also conductive, meaning you can wear a glove made out of the yarn and still work your electronic devices.
I tried the yarn out on a single finger and found it fun to work with and it did allow me to use my phone while I was wearing it. I still intend to knit some gloves with silver fingers this season; I’ll let you know when that happens.
In the meantime, Feel Good Yarn Co., which distributes Silverspun, has released a new pattern called iMitt 2.0, a mitten with an individual thumb and index finger for ease of texting while warm.
The pattern is $4.99 and uses two skeins of the yarn, which is now available again thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign.
