Sorry I have been MIA lately. I’m not even sure where the past couple of weeks have gone. I’m feeling very distracted as of late. My boys have both been not feeling well (allergies, ugh). My hubby is home during the day (teachers get the summers off too). And I’m trying to keep up with my part time job and friends and life and crochet and blogging and sleep. There’s quite a lot of noise in my house most days. Maybe that has something to do with my distraction. Or maybe I’m just getting senile in my old age. Ha! I have been crocheting though. On about a dozen different projects. I can’t seem to get anything actually finished!
These Captain America gloves are ones I made after the Space Ranger (Buzz Lightyear) Gloves were such a hit with my boys. I thought this pattern would be an easier one to get out and hopefully get me back on track.
These gloves are simple and quick to work up and can be added to your little one’s dress up stash. They are great for pretending and even function to keep hands warmer in the cool months! And maybe they’ll actually keep them on because they can be Captain America at the same time! 🙂
(Don’t mind the faded Captain America pajamas and the beat up Shield.)
