Decadent, Useless...


I am using these beautiful yarns to make gloves. Yup: Silk and mohair fingerless gloves. Totally useless, decadent, ridiculous gloves that I can hardly ever wear in Hawaii. I don't care. I love the color, I love the 80's throwback of gloves lacking fingertips, I love the silk, and, quite frankly, I love the useless decadence of them. Maybe I will wear them while driving. Maybe I will wear them with a tank, or with my equally-useless ankle-length Dr. Who scarf.
Come visit! I will be that weird girl with the gloves and the scarf, digging for wool in the Ace Hardware Eyelash-yarn bin!

The gloves will be gorgeous! You go girl! Maybe you can go to ice skating rink just to wear the gloves. :-)

Mmmmm, that yarn looks yummy!

You could always wear the gloves & scarf if you ever go to Haleakala on Maui in Dec and watch the sunrise winds whip Dr Who around.

Even better, maybe I can borrow them when I drag my family up that crater in Nov. :D

Oh, we girls all have to be a bit decadent at times ;) - and these gloves are going to look so beautiful, can't wait to see them knitted up!

I just did the Dr. Who scarf as well for a friend! Did you know there is a website just about his scarf with patterns and pictures!
