Glove Problem by ursulav Glove Problem by ursulav
Just a quick silliness in acknowledgement of addiction... see, I have a serious glove problem. I own about ten pairs. I particularly love fingerless gloves and handwarmers, because I can still type, and I've noticed that my wrist strain is radically reduced if my wrists are kept warm. (I have lousy circulation.) I love love loooooooooooove gloves.

My glove addiction gets its primary outlet at but every now and then I find something elsewhere to feed the savage glove-lust that surges through my veins.

You look like you are plotting an evil scheme around de-fingerizing every glove in existence.

I purely love this. This is me with socks; I gloat over them like you freakin' wouldn't believe. Oh sockdreams, I love you right down to your little cashmere toes.
I would recommend knitting. Then you could make your own...

Since you are by far my favorite artist I might have to make you a pair of fingerless gloves. I knit and have worked up a pattern with a saxon braid that I love for my wrists, they are snug and because of the braid a little stiff, seem to help my wrists.

And I thought that I was the only one who like the fingerless gloves because of the typing....

Like, very awesome!!!

Mmm... I want a pair of fingerless gloves! My hands always get cold when I'm typing for too long. I think you may have discovered the perfect solution for my problem. X3

Cute picture. Here's a glove problem. Why is it when you lose a glove it's always the left one.

Sockdreams is an evil, evil place; full of evil, evil toesocks. They call to me in my dreams, singing their seductive song of individually-clothed and comforted metatarsals.

(Yes, I know that technically, it's the phalanges that are individually clothed, but that didn't roll off the tongue as well.)

This totally describes me. I love it.

Oh, you might like these, designed by Evica Milovanov Penezić.

I don't like leather (or the choice and presentation in the article), but I can't deny that these are really special.
amethyst42 Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2008
I so envy you! I also <3 gloves, but my problem is, my fingers are too long for ready made gloves. I would have to shell out a damn lot for custom made ones... I don't even have any idea where one would go to get them! *guesses Google would be a good start* It would be so awesome to just be able to go out and BUY gloves, though... *sighs dramatically* I'll live through you by proxy, and pretend I'm wearing gloves.

*raises hand* Guilty of said addiction as well. ^^ Really glad to know I'm not the only one!

Man, you're channeling my brain. I have such a thing for gloves. I just...gloves are awesome. I can't _not_ love them. ^_^

Dear ursulav,

How do you type with boxing gloves on?
Avontez Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2008
Thank you SO MUCH for posting that link for sockdreams! I had one pair of fingerless gloves for the past 5 years...and I've had to stop wearing them because they've started to smell no matter how much I've washed them, and it's impossible to find fingerless gloves here. And I never really knew what arm warmers were. Now I have three pairs of fingerless gloves and two arm warmers from sockdreams~ they are so wonderful and warm, these people now own my paycheck

Thanks for spreading the obsession and the word <3

Also, I love how you remembered to keep the gloves in/by the box four-fingered like yourself in this picture. Hehe it's little details like that that make me glee inside

Duuude, 'Gloves R Us'. I need one of those. I LOVE fingerless gloves!!!! I've only got one pair, tho; green and black from Hot Topic, so they look a bit goth (which I don't dress like).
MacKenzieX Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2008
Three words for you. Purple. Velvet. Gloves.

My partner gave them to me for our aniversary. :)

lol- someone with the same fetish! ( although mine all have their fingers)
But where the hell can you find hand warmers? A specialty store?!

I can agree, I recently bought some fingerless gloves and I just adore them.
That expression is too cute.

Hehe! Going to sockdreams on the weekend of the 19th. Veeeeery tempted to get the snap up gloves.

Perhaps you should have titled this piece "glove love" and make it a double-entendre. lols

*wipes brow* good, it's not just me. I too need glove rehab...Knitted myself a lil wristwarmer for my right wrist which is helping immeasurably with that wet clicking noise it makes when I knit/crochet gloves & wristwarmers too much *shifty eyes*.

<<obsession with gloves for as long as i can remember!!!!!!!!!!
Luai-lashire Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2008
My addiction is mainly socks/tights, but gloves are drool-worthy too. I just can't stop buying socks! Over the past two months I have acquired so many new pairs I no longer have room for all of them. I have also taken to layering as many as three pairs of tights and three pairs of socks (for a total of six layers!) in one outfit, to keep warm and look cool in winter.

I even wrote an ode to Sock Dreams. A fucking ODE. That is how obsessed I am.
riceballclubdotorg Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2008
OHMYGOD sockdreams .com. I am. Addicted. To. That. Store. (for the socks, though. It seems I have the same problem you have with gloves, but with knee socks. I have.. at least 50 pairs XD)

Twitchy-Kitty-Studio Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
keeping wrists warm to type.. that's a great idea! My trouble is my fingers get cold and don't work anymore. And no constricting items on wrist allowed, like bracelets or watchbands, because then they just hurt bad.

I like your addiction, is a good one :)

Gloves? Not so much.

That website has totally made my day.

I share your addiction :) But I'm partial to long ones.

That's adorable, and vaguely sinister. (^_^)

... Also, I <3 sock immensely.

If sockdreams does not suffice, head to Etsy.
