Outdoors man self warming fingerless gloves

These fingerless gloves were very popular this past weekend.
 Everytime I had someone try them on they all had the same expression on their face.
Surprise and then... ahhhh it's warm!
I made six pairs and they were all sold before the market was over.
I need a shorter catchy name for these gloves.
got any ideas?

Fingerless Gloves

I just designed a pair of fingerless gloves for the outdoors person that will keep their hands warm for up to 6 hours  Great for fishing, hunting or working in a cold office or warehouse.

My Faithful Friend

So...I'm at Value Village partaking in their 50% off sale and I put my hand in my pocket to find some change and what do you know!  I got pocked with a pin!
 My favorite needle is playing games with me.  Honestly it has a life of its own.
 Well, I didn't get a chance to use it at the last market because it was so busy but as far as I know it came along.  I couldn't find it after that and figured  that is was  lost..again.
Like I was saying I got pricked looking for change, went to the car took out the hair scrunchie from my pocket and there it was.  I laughed a little and realized how lucky I was!!

Market Season

Fingerless gloves made from cashmere

How much better can it get?  Markets most weekends, full-time making things, working from home.  Its great.

The Laughing Needle


You are probably wondering about this picture, well...this happens to be my favorite needle. 
 Thin, long and a big eye fro easier threading.
 Well, you have no idea how many times I have lost this needle at home, at craft fairs, in parks.
 Yesterday I thought, OK, that's it I won't find it this time.  Its gone.  I have been trying to find one just like it but so far no success. This one came from a thrift store along with other needles.   I think it might be a smocking needle, not really sure.  
So, in the morning at the craft fair I was setting up my stuff and laying out the things that I was going to work on, I sat down and there it was...lying there...laughing at me!  

Honestly , I have no idea how it got there.
