As a spring treat and a nice little (if slightly late in the day; we’re claiming our stake in North American time zones, so it still counts, right?) April Fools’ joke we have made an exception to the Year of Socks and put together this lacy, fingerless glove to get you through the April showers. They were meant to go up this morning but due to a surprise wholesale order for our Garden Year of Seeds Grow Your Own Soup kits, we have both been working flat out sewing up 110 seed bags! In a week! Eep!
Bo Peep are delicate and feminine and as part of our un-planned design tradition they come topped with a cute little button. We both got so excited when we came across the lace pattern in Barbara Walker’s First Treasury and couldn’t stop ourselves dreaming of Little Bo Peep counting the sheep running up the palm and skipping through the raindrop eyelets of the fingers and thumb!
The cotton/tencel blend gives them a dewy, early morning sunshiny sheen — perfect for the daily plant watering routine; however don’t try gardening in them! These lacy mitts are for the finer things in life.
