|Bind one off: They’re the easiest fingerless gloves in the universe- a tube (I used double-pointed size 5 needles- 2 knit, 2 perl & cast on 16 stitches on each of 3 needles with cotton yarn that seemed a tad thicker than embroidery yarn). Then I sewed a few stitches at the top to make a thumb space, and they’re done! It’s as easy as the “tube with a hole” fingerless gloves project. A friend from work inspired this project- she was wearing a pair of gloves made just this way– and I couldn’t believe how great they looked, with such a crazy easy pattern.|
Tie one on: Last weekend at the Museum of Art and Design we saw Cheers! A MAD collection of goblets. I love how there are so many glasses to match every different kind of beverage, and that there’s a reason for each design– the flat wide rim of margarita glasses that perfectly displays and distributes salt for every sip, and then the shot glass and espresso cup, both of which deliver the perfect little mouthful of delight, one warm and the other cold, one with a handle and saucer, the other without, both of which are sometimes accompanied by whipped cream.
