Giles: Right! That’s enough training for one day.
Buffy: Well, that last roundhouse was kinda sloppy. Are you sure you don’t wanna do it again?
Giles: No! No, no, that’s fine. You just… run along to class. While I wait for the feeling to return to my arms.

Well, Buffy had a long way to go. All those training lessons. But what really drew me in were those training hours after Dawn appeared.
She focuses. She believes in her strengths. She grows. I imagine her training in winter – yoga might have not been her major (she was never good in doing just one thing – very practical – I love her) – but I see her doing fantastic things in these simple and stylish socks. And the better – Buffy has never been the standard slayer. After training she can quickly pull those socks over her hands and she has some very stylish assessory for the next vampire party on the cemetary, hehe.

buffyoga sockmitts are so simple, yet beautiful.
Pick some dk weight. Knit them top down. Leave out the heal in a beautiful frame. Do it. Now. There has never been a quicker gift for a yoga-fan! Well, and a vampire hunter. You know -

„In every generation there is a chosen one. She alone will stand against the vampires the demons and the forces of darkness. She is the slayer.“

or the party queen ;)
