I have been having a little bit of an 80s revival of late, I recently rediscovered the classic flock of seagulls song, I ran (so far away), which I have been listening to on repeat and annoying my fellow office workers by humming along to it under by breath. To make up for it, I made some commissioned thumb sweat bands/thumb warmers (I think I need to work on the name) for one of my fellow office workers. She has a terrible habit of picking at her cuticles (gross) and so the idea was to put something over her thumbs to stop her from doing it.
A strange commission but it turns out that it isn't too difficult to make tiny little tubes. I got out my double ended needles and attempted, fairly successfully, rib stitch in the round. I chose some multicoloured wool to make them more interesting.
Kindly my lunch was bought for me as thank you, lovely korean tacos, yum!
So what do you think, a new trend for spring/summer 2013, taking your thumbs back to the 80s. I think so!
Lots of love
