« Oh, that Charlotte! | Main | Zipped Up »

October 12, 2005



for some reason fingerless gloves just make some people think of the homeless. I made my BF some, and his office actually turned the air conditioning down because they said he looked homeless hunched over his computer with his coat and fingerless gloves on.


Barbara, your Charlotte is so beautiful. The colors flow together so nicely. Most people just don't get the fingerless mitts thing until they try them themselves. I have a pair I keep on my nightstand for bedtime reading. I hate being all toasty warm under the covers but then have cold wrists and hands. This way my hands stay warm but the fingers are still free for page turning.


I love your gauntlets! Those would make it possible to knit outside in the cooler weather!


Your technician definitely doesn't get it because they are awesome! I am sending my yarn to Zipperstop too for a match. Can't wait to see what they come up with!


Last week when the 4th and 5th graders in my knitting class saw my fingerless gloves that I brought for a sample project they said they were for poor people and didnt like them either. But I knit some Natalyas last winter as a sweet 16 birthday gift for my neice, she thought they were very cool. I guess it is in the eyes of the beholder, and to my eyes yours are lovely.
