Gloves are awesome.

Fingerless mitts are superfly and all, but sometimes you just want a good old fashioned pair of gloves. Not chunky mittens, not those Fred Meyer $1.99 specials, but real, actual, simple yet elegant hand-knit gloves. Michelle Molis, Twisted teacher extraordinaire, is going to show us how to do it. What a great gift for yourself OR your loved ones this holiday season. The class is $40 for two 2-hour sessions. Check out how very much we love these gloves:
