its not an unusual occurrence in my life to lose gloves
the number of gloves i have been through is probably at some astounding figure by now
to be honest i lose everything
but gloves are up there with the top lost items and they are something I cannot live without! especially in this weather.
so as I was deciding on which colours my newest pair of gloves should be in, which is always a hard decision to make,
I realised I have two gloves in a pair and really they don't have to be the same...
I'm not one to care about symmetry or things matching in fact there is something I love about playing with this... odd earrings... odd socks...
why not odd gloves?
personally I think it can make the look of something more interesting. I mean I can appreciate symmetry sometimes it completes a look or balances it nicely
but I also appreciate that it isn't my only option and that is shouldn't restrict me! and so I decided embrace this and to make a mismatch pair of gloves for myself
each glove involves the same colours just variations in the colour placement pretty happy with them
also as you can see from the piano glove shots above I have started making a new style of glove! they are a chunkier knit very comfortable and very movement-friendly... because who really wants to be taking gloves on and off in order to do things
ooh just one last thing before I go... Reckless Exuberance will be at The Rose St Artist Market this Saturday (5 May) 11am-5pm
So if you require some handmade woolen knits in these ridiculously cold conditions come and acquire some from me before it gets even colder! eeek!
peace out exuberance beings x
