Fits Like a Glove

This is my first attempt at knitting gloves. I used a copy of a 1934 pattern that seemed to have errors in it. When it came to making a couple of the fingers, I had to put each glove on as I was knitting it to figure out what the pattern should have said.

I used J&P Coats Knit-Cro-Sheen crochet thread, used double. The left hand turned out better than the right hand because the right hand was done first. By the time I got to the left hand, I understood the process a little better. Also, I just barely had enough thread to make these gloves so some of the fingers ended up a little shorter than they should have been. They may not be perfect, but I can wear them this coming Winter.

Boudoir Doll Sighting - The Film "Speedy" - Harold Lloyd - 1928

Harold Lloyd, Ann Christy in "Speedy" 1928 - boudoir doll given away as prize at Coney Island.








Unfortunately, this YouTube film clip has the wrong music and repeats scenes and has scenes out of context so it doesn't represent the movie correctly. The Coney Island part of this movie, the way it originally was, was great! You might want to rent the DVD - Netflix has it. Anyway, boudoir doll starts at 3:54.........
