good gloves

I don't know about you....but it seems like every time I dye wool, the skin around the cuticle part of my nails seems to shred. I've self-diagnosed it to be a reaction to the powder used in the disposable gloves (there is little difference whether I use latex or vinyl)...and I had accepted it as a necessary evil of dyeing. Not any more.

I was down to my last pair of gloves and when I was last at Costco, I discovered these ones...

$9.79 per box, a pretty blue colour, no powder and no raw or irritated fingers. Who could ask for anything more? (okay, so the fit is a little loose, but totally tolerable). Happy dyeing!
