Something’s cooking down in the kitchen

Oven_mitt1I seem to spend an inordinate amount of time in the kitchen creating meals for my family amongst the chaos.

It’s a fairly minimalist affair – I’m not a fan of having lots of frippery hanging around because it only gets dirty and housework isn’t my forte.  However I do like the odd little nicety and for a long time I’ve been meaning to make myself some decent oven gloves.  I don’t like the ones that are joined because they are always getting in the way and the ones without a thumb are just too cumbersome.

This little creation (made before breakfast no less!) is completely of my own design and fits me (if you’ll excuse the pun) like a glove.  It has two layers of wadding inside, one of which is thermally insulated, so hopefully it will protect me against the heat.  I am going to make a couple of tweaks to the pattern and then you’ll be able to buy a pair for your very own.
