I still haven’t figured these things out…wrist warmers, texting gloves, call them what you will. They are fairly simple to make, a quick and easy gift that ended up turning into a high sales item. I was actually very surprised.
I am terrible at following directions…I used to get in trouble at school because of that, so, goes to say, it’s something I never really out grew. I love pattern books, don’t get me wrong. But often times I use them only for inspiration and to get a beginning idea of how to shape an item, then it’s off to the races! (which is probably why my thumb holes look kind of screwed up)
I’m also the kind of person that doesn’t much like following a map, either. If I’m going on a trip I like finding different things, “off the beaten path”, not so much being stuck on a time line and planning every little detail. I’ve tried it both ways and have found the pre-planned ones never go nearly a well as the out of the blue surprises. And, so I am with traveling and stitching. Sometimes it’s a bust, but more often than not, it is freeing, exciting and fun.
