Hey Blogger Buds,
I could launch into a whole complicated story about this, but here are the basics, starting with two random and useless facts about me that you were probably fine without knowing.
I have cold fingers. I think it's a genetic thing. Even when it's pretty warm outside, my fingers are cold and a bit stiff. Typing doesn't help get the blood flowing. At all.
I hate gloves. I hatez them. They always make the backs of my hands itch.
I'm doing NaNoWriMo this year. (More on that in a later post.)
So, although fingerless gloves are cool, they're completely useless. What I needed instead are gloveless fingers!
And thus, Finger Socks were born.
|Yes, as a matter of fact, I am reminding you to DFTBA.|
The picture above is of my first set. I use junky $1 gloves and a pair of scissors. I cut these pink ones too short. I also made thumbs, which are decorated, but they're not pictured. I have some stuff I might design these two with, if I don't cut up another pair of gloves.
I've got big dreams for my Finger Socks. First Etsy, then...
The Finger Socks are worn when I'm writing, blogging, whatever. They don't have tips, so you can use the keyboard and mouse with ease. :D
So. What do you guys think? If I got the hang of this, would these sell? Am I living in the clouds? (Don't answer that one.)
Peace and Penguins,
