Have you caught up yet?
On another note, we had a grand Christmas here. Dave's sister who lives in LA came up and stayed with us. I often use her to find out what's up and coming in the fashion world, and wouldn't you know it, she was a wealth of information. Everybody, and I do mean everybody are into the fingerless glove rage. Now that's a little project I took on myself, but will not be doing for the shop. If one of the guys wants to, have fun. Remember I am just the gal who blogs and keeps the Etsy store front looking nice. Wish I could say that about my garage. I see a "big trash day" on the horizon.
I would have to say that the easiest way to get a pair of these gloves is of course to buy them! That being said, if you knit or crochet, you can make yourself a pair. Or lastly you can do it the hard way (like me).
Then I cut off the sleeves, shaved them with a disposable razor (a trick Sarah taught me), measured them to about elbow length, took a needle and thread and double hemmed the tops, being careful to not let my stitching show much. Then I put the sleeves on, decided where my thumb would go, carefully took a box knife and gently undid the seam giving my self about an inch for a thumb hole. I think next time I will give myself an inch and a half because when you hem the thumb hole you loose some of your room in the thumb hole. But all in all for a first attempt I think I did pretty good.
What do you think??
