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.
Oh my Judy–those are simply adorable!!!
Just saw the Grinch movie….those are perfect!!!!

Wonder how many other kiddos are lucky enough to have a granny to make them Grinch Gloves??? She is so special…..Enjoy you time with her….My grands are all in there 30’s & 20’s, still great, but not as much fun……Dot M. In Pa.

Their grannies may not make them Grinch gloves but they may be there to keep them when they’re sick, or go to all their soccer games. I do what I can, which I would love to be doing from 2 miles away but . . bloom where you’re planted and right now, I’m planted 10 hours away. I do think it takes a village and having loving, caring grandparents is so important to a child. I wish every kid had a wonderful family, but sadly, we know that’s not how life works sometimes.
I am loving every minute of this age with Addie. I know it will not be too many years before she doesn’t have time for me and would rather do most anything than be seen out with Granny so I’m enjoying it while I can and knowing it won’t last forever.

Someone I know told me today that she has become a grandmother (for the first time). She’s so excited, and the way she introduced it, I asked if her daughter (the mother) is single. Not to pass judgment, but because it seems like it must be so much easier to have the father around to share the work (and the emotions). At least Grandma is right there.
p.s. Those gloves are hilarious and adorable!

Granny you are out doing yourself. You will need a vacation after Christmas.

Knitting isn’t work. Well, gloves . . maybe but I knew while making those that there’s a slim chance I’ll ever make another pair. I can do most anything once! Seriously, I do get back from MO exhausted. Staying at someone else’s house. Keeping up with a 6 year old. Walking a Husky when I’m used to dealing with a Chihuahua. And the 10 hour drive home . . . that’s the most tiring part. But, when I get back home, to my own surroundings, and there’s no hustle and bustle, I can rest for a week or so and be ready to go again.

How cute and clever! I hope she enjoys wearing them and waving her Grinchy fingers around!
