Reindeer clock hand in progress

I have been working on a new clock hand today. Above: in progress. Below: the first version, which I ditched because I realised that wearing a watch over your glove is a dumb idea.
Or is it? We rarely need gloves in winter where I live; perhaps a reader from a colder climate will enlighten me and say that yes of course one has to wear a watch over one's glove.

Above: perhaps instead of thinking about the technicalities of winter gloves I should have been outside in the spring sunshine like everyone else in Melbourne today.
(By the way, I have ditched the polka dotted sleeve seen here because it was a little too cute: I kept thinking of a girl who has snuck outdoors on Christmas morning in her pyjamas. A brown checked coat may -- or may not -- strike a more appropriate balance.)

If my gloves were long, then yeah, I'd wear my watch over the top! Not such a crazy idea.

Hahaha, cute! I agree that a coat would be more fitting :)

I wouldn't wear a watch over gloves because it'd be hard to take the gloves off when you get inside! Having said that, I haven't worn a watch in years, and it doesn't get so very cold here... only wear gloves when I'm cycling in winter :)

Ha ha, of course not!
We just tuck everything in!

Ha ha, of course not! We tuck everything in nice and warm!

Ha! The road to beauty is such a process! YOu know i think people do wear watches over gloves. I remember Holly Hunter in that awful movie Home for the Holidays. The thing i recall is that she wore her watch over the sleeve of her sweater and it looked somehow groovy! All best, sandra! jx

hee hee!! I love all of your comments, thank you. They read a bit strangely today, in a good way, because I am sitting at my desk feeling a bit too warm in my long jeans!

Best to you all

This is shaping up to be yet another super excellent clock hand. Can't wait to see the finished masterpiece! I agree muchly that a brown checked coat would be quite striking.

Thanks Rigel! Lovely to hear from you. Brown checked coat it shall be!
