Coraline Gloves for Carolyn

August 17, 2010

Do you have any idea how HAPPY I am that are finished?  I spent TWO DAYS weaving in the ends!  That’s 50 per glove!   I had a h**l of a time with the closure at the missing finger with all the color changes and stupid ends.  Usually I put the glove on when weaving.  Since I didn’t want to cut my ring finger off, I had to improvise.  I used an Emory board, a fat ballpoint pen and a tube of lip balm, but working between the pinkie and middle was still difficult. 

If you are interested in making your own, I’ll be putting up a new page.  I’ve already started it, so it won’t be too long. 

I will be starting her third pair of gloves this evening.  One color this time.   Then, I think I’ll make two pairs of socks.  I have got to make myself a pair of Caroline gloves, but with fingering weight.    It should be Autumn by then so I’ll probably start a sweater.  But, will I be able to get to my yarn by then?

Here is the new kitchen wall.  Doug called the cabinet people today and someone is coming by tomorrow.  Yeah! 

See the little closet?  Flo thinks that it’s a good place to keep her Skunky.  She has a lot of trouble finding a place to keep him.

This morning, she talked to Skunky and carried him around the house.  When it was time for ‘cafe au lait’ (minus the cafe), she brought him in to have some.

I have got about six rows of squares to go on the second sock.  I want to go on t o something else.  It’s too hot to do anything big, so I’m thinking gloves.

I have been trying to take a picture of Flo with her Skunky for weeks.  I finally got one this evening.  She runs around with it in her mouth.  She sticks it in a corner when she eats.  And she talks to it.  As wild as she is, I think she would be a good mother.  She’ll never get that chance.  I got her from a ‘No Kill’ shelter.  She’s been spayed and that’s fine with me.  As far as I’m concerned, it’s the way  to go.  Look at these sweet faces.  They deserve a long and happy life and we intend t give them one.
