These wristwarmers were made for my uncle who lives in FL. Now you may ask yourself what someone in FL needs with wristwarmers, but let me start by saying he lives in NORTHERN FL. And it does get cold there...sometimes (at least one or two days down in the 40's in the winter). He noticed a pattern for wristwarmers in one of my knitting books, and made the comment that they would be perfect for when he goes fishing....night fishing in particular. And like I said, it can get cold up there in Northern FL. Florida has not been very chilly this winter, but I can just picture him out there in his shorts, t-shirt, Crocs, and wristwarmers. He is a man who appreciates a handmade gift..even if it does probably make him sweat.
*One night, the Bean was getting in bed and there was a knock at the front door. She asked me who it was and I said the pizza man. She said "oh, I thought it was the muffin man." When my uncle heard this story, he called her up and told her HE was the muffin man. Everytime he comes to visit, he brings her muffins. I think she really thinks he is the guy from the song!
