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.
