I suffer with chill blains and I get fed up taking gloves on and off to regulate my temperature. I asked hubby to pick me up a couple of thin, cotton pairs from the UK and he threw me a pair of his socks and said 'make your own'
Choose an old pair of socks
Cut above the heel
Hem the top with a blanket stitch
Put on and mark where you want the thumb hole
Cut the thumb hole about 1.5cm long, use blanket stitch or machine button hole
