The Fingerless Gloves were made and the Cat was being a little Pest
I just love thrift store shopping. I haven't really stepped foot in a department store lately. Actually I can't remember the last time I was inside a store shopping for myself. I do all of my shopping in the thrift stores. Years Years, I mean YEARS ago I thought thrift shops as icky,gross and full of outdated clothing.
Well as I have seen gross, icky and outdated clothing/items, there are plenty of great stuff. I always keep an eye for vintage that would go great in my vintage shop. I have a so-so eye for it.
I did come out with a few good selections of clothing, some hair curlers and lots of fabric,all half price.
So I finally got the chance to work on my fingerless gloves. I used black knit lace fabric. I made it to be fitted and slightly past my wrists. I didn't have much light left or time to work on them, so I left them plain. But I was very happy with the results. I have lots of ideas for what else I want to make, with border lace, rhinestones and buttons.
Creating these was quite fun but I had a couple little furry creatures climbing and playing all around me and on me. I have 4 little five month old kittens and the momma plus another 8 yr old cat. Funny how each kitten has its own character. The one I will talk about today is Little Brother, this one loves to climb on me and hang around my neck. He will often do this given the chance. He not only does that but he loves to nibble me and what I can only explain as grooming the nape of my neck with his little teeth. feels very weird and makes me squirm. He apparently enjoys doing it.He is the only one that does this. Each one does his own thing, but this one is extremely loving and affectionate with me. Purrs like a maniac.
