Or… Upcycling gone crazy.
My hands get so cold when I am working, that I find it hard to make the jewellery or type properly sometimes. I’m not putting the bloody heating on, again, either. I could treat myself to some gorgeous hand-knitted beauties like those that can be found on Folksy or Etsy, but today I just HAD ENOUGH! In desperation, here is what I just did:
Took a pair of old bobbly threadbare walking socks and a pair of scissors.
Carefully snipped a small sliver off at the toe end, not the full width. Then made a hole for the thumb.
Voila! See how I utilized the threadbare sole of the sock for my palm area so that they aren’t too bulky….so smug!
Ok, so maybe it’s a little sad and desperate, but hey, I have warm hands! And I could always audition for an extra’s part in Dickens.
