Remember the green gloves I made for Addie last week?
I do not like making gloves. I will make mittens or fingerless mittens all day, every day but those fingers on gloves – not fun at all.
But it was all worth it because last night, I pulled fiber through the tips of the fingers and now we have Grinch gloves.
The fiber is a yellowy lime green . . not white like it appears in my late night picture. I think she’s going to be surprised and maybe a little apprehensive about wearing them. My guess is that she’ll stick them in her backpack on “Whoville” Day and assess the situation once she gets to school and decide if she should wear them or not.
When you put the gloves on, the fiber waves like clouds. The fiber is pretty fragile and may all fall out if someone pulls on it but I’ll assure her that I’ll be arriving in town on the evening of Whoville Day and I’ll bring more fiber with me to replace any that might fall out or be pulled out.
For some reason, I thought Whoville Day was the day after I get there but since it’s the day I’m getting there (in the evening), I have to get these in the mail.
