I sat down the other day with an idea to make slippers. I still have to do that, because the slippers somehow morphed into fingerless gloves. I got off track somewhere, and rather than rip out the whole things, I just changed direction. I love fingerless gloves for cool winter evenings at home in front of the computer - where I often find myself. I couldn't possibly wear them outside - I am a mitten girl. You can see from these photos that my hands were freezing! All those reddened fingertips! And it was a gloriously beautiful day in the middle of January in Montana - forty-two degrees! But I was cold! (It seems I love exclamation points!!!)
Don't you love the color of these gloves? It's a wonderfully warm spicy shade of persimmon, and caught my eye right away at the Ben Franklin Store.
