I was thinking about those skeleton gloves Norm was wearing yesterday, thinking about how the first time I grabbed his hand to hold it as we were walking, the palms of the gloves felt tacky. He said that's because they were football receiver gloves, so they had this grip surface on the palms. Whatever dude, I thought.
So tonight I'm getting ready to practice some free-motion quilting when all of a sudden—
"Can I see your gloves?" I asked.
I tried them on. They were a perfect fit. I felt the tacky surface again. It was like the underside of a Supreme Slider, the part that sticks to your machine.
"Mind if I borrow these for a bit?" He didn't mind. I took them down to my sewing room.
Duuuu-huuu-huuude!! Those gloves are awesome for quilting!
I feel like I have even more control and dexterity than when I wear my Machingers. They're very lightweight, and I like the Velcro wristband a lot more than an elastic cuff.
And check this out: They even come in pink!
He got his at Walmart a couple weeks ago (and yes, he still had the package tag). Said there were several styles and colors. I hope they still have some left!
