Slow Clothing

Here is the inside (purl) and the outside (knit) of my current project, long fingerless gloves for myself, intended as a “swatch” for a bigger and even more “boring” item.

As far as knitting is concerned, this is simple and low on creativity points; it takes a while to make.
What I enjoy about this is the idea of making my own clothes and making them slowly, considering how easily available instant gratification is, and how often I succumb to that.
A friend once asked: “Why would you make your own fabric and take so long doing that?!”
Yep, that’s the whole point, and a joy in itself, all with the time it takes and tiny imperfections created along the way.
Making my own delicate and strong fabric here.
