Glove Problem

Just a quick silliness in acknowledgement of addiction... see, I have a serious glove problem. I own about ten pairs. I particularly love fingerless gloves and handwarmers, because I can still type, and I've noticed that my wrist strain is radically reduced if my wrists are kept warm. (I have lousy circulation.) I love love loooooooooooove gloves.

My glove addiction gets its primary outlet at sockdreams.com but every now and then I find something elsewhere to feed the savage glove-lust that surges through my veins.

You look like you are plotting an evil scheme around de-fingerizing every glove in existence.

I purely love this. This is me with socks; I gloat over them like you freakin' wouldn't believe. Oh sockdreams, I love you right down to your little cashmere toes.

I would recommend knitting. Then you could make your own...

Since you are by far my favorite artist I might have to make you a pair of fingerless gloves. I knit and have worked up a pattern with a saxon braid that I love for my wrists, they are snug and because of the braid a little stiff, seem to help my wrists.

And I thought that I was the only one who like the fingerless gloves because of the typing....

Like, very awesome!!!

I can make it worse :D Just look at my gallery or my etsy shop: [link]

:D I've been following your work for a while, and I never knew :P

I hand make and design all the pairs I sell :P And I LOVE custom work!

'Tis better to have gloved and lost, than never to have gloved at all.

Mmm... I want a pair of fingerless gloves! My hands always get cold when I'm typing for too long. I think you may have discovered the perfect solution for my problem. X3

Cute picture. Here's a glove problem. Why is it when you lose a glove it's always the left one.

Sockdreams is an evil, evil place; full of evil, evil toesocks. They call to me in my dreams, singing their seductive song of individually-clothed and comforted metatarsals.

(Yes, I know that technically, it's the phalanges that are individually clothed, but that didn't roll off the tongue as well.)

I don't like leather (or the choice and presentation in the article), but I can't deny that these are really special.

I so envy you! I also <3 gloves, but my problem is, my fingers are too long for ready made gloves. I would have to shell out a damn lot for custom made ones... I don't even have any idea where one would go to get them! *guesses Google would be a good start* It would be so awesome to just be able to go out and BUY gloves, though... *sighs dramatically* I'll live through you by proxy, and pretend I'm wearing gloves.

Man, you're channeling my brain. I have such a thing for gloves. I just...gloves are awesome. I can't _not_ love them. ^_^

Dear ursulav,

How do you type with boxing gloves on?

Thank you SO MUCH for posting that link for sockdreams! I had one pair of fingerless gloves for the past 5 years...and I've had to stop wearing them because they've started to smell no matter how much I've washed them, and it's impossible to find fingerless gloves here. And I never really knew what arm warmers were. Now I have three pairs of fingerless gloves and two arm warmers from sockdreams~ they are so wonderful and warm, these people now own my paycheck

Thanks for spreading the obsession and the word <3

Also, I love how you remembered to keep the gloves in/by the box four-fingered like yourself in this picture. Hehe it's little details like that that make me glee inside

Duuude, 'Gloves R Us'. I need one of those. I LOVE fingerless gloves!!!! I've only got one pair, tho; green and black from Hot Topic, so they look a bit goth (which I don't dress like).

Three words for you. Purple. Velvet. Gloves.

My partner gave them to me for our aniversary. :)
