Caxton told us about her perfect boating gloves, as she helped us down the Farmer's Bridge Locks. Gloves are difficult: woollen ones get wet, but waterproof ones often stick to your windlass, making it difficult to wind paddles up and down. Lesley recommended Grippi Waterproof gloves, so while we were iced in at Tixall Wide we looked them up on the internet. They were two pairs for the price of one at the time (not any more, apparently), and the two pairs could be different sizes. They arrived yesterday. Perhaps the eight inches of snow in the garden means that today is a good day to try them out.
