one day i
saw this great pic
(i think it was on etsy)
of crochet fingerless gloves.
what caught my eye was the horizontal thumb holes.
led me to leap onto an entirely different train of thought.
it meant sleekness (which i love).
it meant that a stitch pattern could be uninterrupted (which i love).
it meant no fussy shaping for a knitter to get bogged down in (which i love).
all that was holding me back from knitting some up
the elegance of the simplicity
when adding curves,
because loose, ill-fitting gloves
i really don’t love.
the lycra in the mix of silverspun
easily solved that lingering dilemma.
so i sketched (albeit badly)
and thanks to feel good yarn company,
