That whole saying about the shoemaker's children having no shoes? So true. Or, in my case, it's the shoemaker herself, who seems to never have gloves on hand. I prefer fingerless mitts to actual gloves so I'm not pulling them on and off constantly. I'm knitting this pair for myself in sport weight cashmere in hopes I'll have warm hands by midweek. They are going quickly as I haven't been able to shake the icky sick that descended on our house with the holidays, so I'm going to perch on the couch today with my knitting and a nice cup of tea.
