Gloves needed

posted in: Blog | 5

Oh my, winter is suddenly very close. First the sun vanished into a chilly mist and this afternoon it started to rain… and rain… I am mightily thankful for the Gore-Tex lining in my boots. Unfortunately, I suffered significant glove loss last winter, and by March had only left-hand ones. Having failed to address this problem for the last six months, I am disappointed to find that new right-hand gloves have not grown in my pockets, so I will have to do something more proactive.

On the loom I have another Waterfront design underway. And next to the loom I have the heater on…

    I’m always surprised when beautiful October turns cold; knowing where you are, I’ll remember not to whinge and whine about Puget Sound wet. Wine is okay, whine, not! The weaving goes on … and this web is beautiful.

    Ooh! I like this one, too! We just got back from a chilly, damp Europe, and I sympathize with your feeling that winter is on its way, and in a hurry, too. Stay warm, and grow those gloves quickly.

    For what it’s worth, turning a glove inside out allows it to be worn on the opposite hand. I do it all the time at work. Not all gloves respond to this measure….. for example furry pile-lined gloves look silly inside out. Knit or fleece gloves are the best.

      That’s a great idea, Jean. I shall have to make reversability a criterion for my new glove selection!
