Please look at my profile pictures to see the horror that was my gift from MIL

Apparently, it is a pair of fingerless gloves (no fingers at all) with a matching hairband.

I might add that she doesn't knit.

They're not even symmetrical. confused

I had a coconut from my DM.

shock That is pretty bad. If she doesn't knit, where would you buy something like that?

LadyBlaBlah Mon 27-Dec-10 16:40:22

Yes, Trolley they aren't even the same size

ChippyMinTurnAgainWhittington Mon 27-Dec-10 16:42:57

Ah, but does she crochet? [Miss Marple]
Are they Wrist warmers perhaps?

TrinityMotherOfRhinos Mon 27-Dec-10 16:43:39

so she bought them??

bloody hell or she knitted them knowing she cant knit?

or maybe she paid someone lots of money to kniw them for you....bespoke manky gloves grin

maybe they aren't gloves and a headband

maybe they are cup warmers, phone socks erm...

She works in a pound store. I have suspicions they were lifted from've all seen them now haven't you

Perhaps it is a garter belt - a winter one

LadyBlaBlah Mon 27-Dec-10 20:17:05

Perhaps she thinks I am a twat

They look suspiciously like something bought from a "sale of work" from a retirement home or similar. Can you console yourself that the money may have gone to a good cause? hmm

Could have been worse grin

I think the gloves are actually quite sweet. Not sure they would keep your hands very warm however. Matching headbans is a little odd.

are they not wrist and head sweat bands?!! Can you belive, that actually came to me the other night after I was dropping off to sleep (saddo)
