Jane sewed mittens sealskin and leather when we in Uummannaq. In Qaanaaq she switched to knitting paffequtit – wrist warmers. Paffequtit are a common sight in Greenland, worn by men and women. Perhaps mostly worn by women, but after wearing them for a short time, it’s a no brainer! It’s fun to experience just how much warmer you are when wearing them around your wrist.
They can be as basic as you like, as long as you like, and as decorative as you like.
Now, I’m not very handy, but I am very good at placing plenty of orders to keep Jane busy, including an old kindle cover with Smaug and the Lonely Mountain!
Yeah. not quite a wrist warmer, but you get the idea. 😉
