Planetarium Wrist Warmers
Ever wanted to hold the whole world in your hands? How about a whole solar system?
From Ganymede to Titan… a very woolly look at the our solar system. With all of the planets, and an (admittedly incomplete) supporting cast of planetary bodies, moons and asteroids (full diagram on page 3), these mittens are totally geeky and surprisingly educational!

2.75mm / US 2 circular needles or DPNs.
