Wow! We are already into the second month of 2013. January 2013 has flown by in a flash...or atleast it sure feels like it. 2013 - a year whose arrival was much awaited and that too with bated breath. Not because it is a special year but because we all wanted to see whether we would survive 2012! What with the doomsday predictions and all.
And now we are already into February 2013. So before the winter flies by in a flash too, I want to share one more winter item with you.
Actually I made these crocheted lace fingerless mitts last year. I have always thought that gloves are very romantic, elegant, sophisticated, Jane Austen-ey, victorian, Audrey Hepburn.... okay okay I think you got it. I really liked THIS pattern and had to make it right away.
I wear them at home whenever it gets really cold. I have never worn them when I go out and there are a couple of reasons for that.
A) I had never seen anybody wear such mitts, at least not in my part of the woods...
B) when they were done and I was strutting about the house wearing them, sonny boy very delicately and politely told me "Mom don't even think of wearing them in public. Especially if I am around."
So much for elegance...!!
The next photo pose is as per instructions from assistant cameraman (sonny boy...who else!) ;)
But I am always happy to wear them at home and pretend I am Emma or Elizabeth... Who says make believe is only for kids ;)
Sigh.... that is all for now, girls. Off with the mitts as I go to plan today's menu. I don't think my Mr. Darcy will appreciate a bare dinner table.
A happy and joyful February to all of you.
