Frank's late grandfather had kept bees for years. Not once did he use protective clothing! One day, I hope to be like that. But for now, I am a chicken-shit. I was perusing Bee Maid's website looking at the protective gear. I was telling Frank that I would need two pair of these gloves.
These are Cowhide gloves and they sell for $18.95. The goat skinned gloves sell for $22.25.
Frank politely tells me that I don't need to buy those. Why? Because you can make them. So I silently said, 'GRRRRRR!!!!!!'
I bought a cloth drop-cloth a while back for another project, so I used just enough for two sets of gloves. I went looking for a matched pair of ladies work gloves and I made Maddie and I each a pair of gloves.
