I've seen those gloves we quilters can buy to protect our hands while using rotary cutters; they're rather pricey, going for around $25 retail. This morning, however, my husband showed me something. You see, he frequently manages to cut his hands when using a knife. Since he loves to fish, he must do a certain amount of knife-wielding to clean and fillet his catch. Who knew that something called a "fillet glove" existed? Even better, who knew that it was just like the gloves quilters use to stay safe while rotary cutting? Best yet, who knew that fillet gloves range in price from around $10 to almost as much as a rotary-cutting glove? Here's what my husband bought for his use, paying about $15 for one that will work for a leftie:
Actually, this one will work for people who are either left-handed or right-handed. Sadly, just as with the rotary cutting gloves, they don't seem to be available for people who need something smaller than "medium" or "large". Still, it's an option.
On another topic, our adorable little cocker spaniel was so cute yesterday! I'd been sorting laundry, dumping a few things on the floor of the closet for different loads. I walked away briefly and, when I came back, this is what I saw:
Did I mention that she's simply adorable? ;)
