Essential daily companions
I bought these work gloves this fall when we were out purchasing other supplies for the house. These were the first pink work gloves I had seen and when I saw them I knew I had to buy them. There is a strange phenomenon at work in my family - work gloves usually disappear unless they are quite distinctive. Everyone tends to end up with similar looking gloves and they get forgotten and reclaimed and make the rounds before some recognizes them and says, "Oh! That's where those went." I figured this way the menfolk wouldn't mistake them for theirs and likely wouldn't even borrow them if they couldn't find their own. So far so good!
I use these gloves at least a dozen times a day when I am loading or checking the wood stove or when I am filling up the pots and kettles to heat up dish water or if I have to grab something from outside quickly and don't need the warmth of my winter gloves.
Mine are the "Petal Pushers" from this page. Technically they're gardening gloves but they are great all around gloves as well. :)
