I used to not like fingerless gloves, but since I started living in a poorly insulated apartment, I've realized that there's no other way to type during the winter. So I finally knitted myself a pair:



"Hold Fast" is a traditional sailor knuckle tattoo, a sort of charm against falling from the rigging or letting go of a line. I've always liked the motto; sort of a metaphor for remembering to keep a tight grip on things.

I totally agree with you about the "hold fast" sentiment. I was recently browsing some tattoo books and thought that phrase would be cool on some fingerless gloves. And it is!
