Wha-cha talkin’ bout Willis::
(Diff’rent Strokes is an American television sitcom that aired on NBC from November 3, 1978, to May 4, 1985)
I knit these fingerless  gloves and they were so big for my hands and I was super sad.For tiny hands  you can try to figure out what your numbers are like sock or look for little girls fingerless and make a tiny  pair bit bigger.
designers.. please put measure if the hand it was made for so we the knitters can adjust easily. I will frog these and start again.


Tru-ly Recommends :: Summer fresh ideas

“Mercury by Heather Dixon” ( with Army of knitter)
this has a sleek look .. the design Stands out. You can also do it with color popping through i would love a bronze one in Sidar yarn has a metallic yarn that works well.
+ a neon or white one  for freshness crisp addition to my legging and shorts and then you add a black or bright color tank underneath.

$7 for pattern and it could compliment different juicy size whoohoo.
Fashion Spotlight::
