Last week, I spent a week on a Caribbean beach relaxing on the sand and soaking up some sun. With me were my sister and her two lovely daughters. So, this week it is back to reality.
There were questions from my last post about my thimbles and how do I use them. Being right-handed, this is how I wear them. The yellow finger needle grab is a piece from a latex glove for washing dishes.
My thimbles are extra large and tape, etc. is used to line the inside so that the thimbles fit my finger. I had some thimbles that were an exact fit but the metal bothered my skin and a rash developed every time I used them.
The one on the left has a piece of the latex glove cut up and taped to the inside of the thimble. It acts as a cushion and relieves friction against the metal.
The middle thimble has black electrical tape inside for the same purpose.
The needle grabber shows two pieces together (they were too large to use separately). You don't want the grabber too loose that it flies off your finger.
On another post, I will talk about waxing my threads.
Have a good day!
