Out of the box!

I've been trying to think of some new items/projects that would appeal on ETSY. My daughter-in-law gave me a "Knitting Day By Day" calendar last year that has been really terrific. It was produced in England & sometimes the patterns are confusing but generally I can figure them out. I had noticed fingerless gloves and hand warmers on etsy and then a pattern on this calendar so I gave them a shot. I can see the use of them when driving, working in a chilly environment or whenever you need good dexterity that gloves prevent. They are very comfortable. I altered the pattern by adding the eyelash yarn on the bottom and of course, I had to add buttons. These are truly a vintage set as I have had them for at least 25 years. What do you think of my new item?

Barbra, these are really cute. I love the eyelash yarn trim! Thanks for the visit to my blog and your lovely comment. I see that you live in "button heaven"! You have wonderful creations - I'll be back to look around some more.

I love that trim - makes them really stand out (that, and of course the buttons). You have an eye for the good stuff!
