My Must Make FO
Only because I saw this project in Mason-Dixon Knitting Outside the Lines, and said to myself, "Self, you could really use a pair of these." After all, what woman in her right mind knits cuffs on her playtex kitchen gloves as a birthday present to herself? Well, me, but enough said on that...

Happy birthday!

Those are pretty cool. If you have to wear the danged things they might as well have a bit of style. Are the cuffs knitted directly onto the gloves or can you somehow take them off the old pair and put them on a new pair? I have a habit of ruining rubber gloves almost as soon as I put them on.

To another year better!

The cuffs are knitted into backstitches on the gloves. I imagine they could be removed as needed and grafted onto a new pair of backstitched gloves. Grafting is my plan of attack for when I eventually destroy the glove somehow. They really do keep the water from running up/down your arm when washing dishes!

That's great! I like the idea but it seems like a lot of effort on something disposable but if you can reuse the cuffs then that is one fabulous birthday gift to you!

Very cool and seems like a practical idea even with disposing of them sooner or later. WTG!

In the book, they recommend using the fancy gloves with bonded cloth on the inside. I just couldn't justify the expense, not knowing if I'd like how they fit with a cuff. Now that I know, I may well invest in some "good" gloves for me and DD, who liked them.

Husband loves them and now I have to hide them from him so he doesn't take them outside and leave them there. No creepy-crawlies in my gloves, please!

Make yours hot pink? That wouldn't work for me, the guys I cope with don't care if they use pink tools or not, they'd not care if the gloves were pink. Yeah, he needs his own.

Husband is the same, GG. He's the only man I know who unabashedly wears pink. He can knit cuffs on his own gloves to leave outside!
