Gloves for ME

I'm getting back in the swing of things around here...

I finally made me a pair of these Romantic Fingerless Gloves to keep for myself. I've made several pairs over the last couple of year but have never kept any. Now I have some. I immediately started another pair in a slightly less bulky yarn. The ones above are made with Hobby Lobby ILTY and an I hook. I love this pattern!

I must thank Bev for inspiring me to make some gloves. She shared a pattern for gloves the other day that were really cute, so I got out my yarn and hook and made these. They take me about 3-4 hours to make, start to finish. It depends on how many times I get interrupted by the phone, dogs, hubby, etc. You know how that goes.

The second pair I'm making out of Caron SS Paints.


The spaghetti sauce I made in the crockpot the other day was SO GOOD. I just never get tired of spaghetti.

Speaking of spaghetti, I was watching Giada on the Food Channel this morning. I don't know why, but it really bothers me and makes me mad when she pronounces the Italian dishes she makes with an exaggerated Italian accent. Like today she kept saying spaghetti like this:  Spa-GEE-tee, with the accent on the "gee". She said it at least 5-6 times during the show. She also said pimento like this:  Pim-ee-EN-to, with the accent on the "en". GAH.

Mind you, she says everything else with no foreign accent at all, but she feels the need to say the Italian words with that stupid, fake, pretentious pronunciation. It makes me want to run up and push her down on her kitchen rug, and then grab her shoulders and shake the shit out of her.

We have a news anchor lady here in Dallas that does the same thing with Spanish names. She has absolutely no accent, but is suddenly stricken with a heavy one when those names comes up just because she has a Spanish heritage. It sounds really dumb and I get annoyed every time.

I'm trying really hard not to get up and make something sweet. I think it might be making me a tad irritable.

Okay, bye.


  1. Gorgeous gloves! I always love to see people crocheting and knitting for themselves. It's a great treat we can offer to ourselves from time to time even if we usually craft for others.

  2. Love the gloves Pammy Sue. And that spaghetti sauce you made looks absolutely delicious.


  3. Oh I am laughing so hard, cuz I feel the same way about Giada :)
