Left-Handed Thimbles -

Yesterday I got a comment on a post -

That I wrote last February -

Last YEAR February -

Not last month - ;))

I have always moderated my comments -

So that I don’t miss any -

Especially on older posts -

Because you never know who is reading what -

Or what they may have to say - ;))

Anyway -

I got this email from Simon -
As a comment on my Thimbles post - HERE -

Simon said -
(Honest - ;))

Ok - I just got asked by my girlfriend to find her a left handed thimble. After the initial laughing stopped I realised she was serious and we had a "discussion" about thimbles being symmetrical and not made for a certain hand. Could someone please confirm for me (and my girlfriend) that there is no such thing as a left handed thimble? Thank you - Simon.

Simon - As far as I know, thimbles are neither Right-Handed nor Left-Handed. The ones that I have seen and used are symmetrical and can be used on either hand. BUT I may be wrong. If you like, I will pose your question on my blog and see if I can get more information for you - ;))

After I hit “Send” -

I realized that - of course -

Simon is a “no-reply commenter” -

So my response went to somewhere in la-la land -

But - I ask you -

Is there such a thing as a Left-Handed Thimble?

Simon and I would like to know - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. I could be wrong too, but I don't think so!

  2. But of course there is!! Proof....Take your thimble and put it on your finger of choice. Now look to see which hand you put it on. There! A Left-Handed Thimble!
    I think Simon said a lot of "stuff"! ;o)

    1. You never know - he's probably joking - but there COULD be a thimble out there that has dimples on the end and only ONE side - and specifically designed for Lefties. He made me think about it - ;))

  3. I have a hard time using thimbles, I actually have a small 'collection' and when I'm in thrift stores, I hunt out thimbles. I picked one up a couple years ago and it had been well used and still had the adhesive tape (or other sticky product) in it. When I put that thimble on, I swear it actually FIT! It's my 'go to' thimble, so maybe the answer is yes to the left handed thimble - IF it got 'broke in' by a left handed person and it fits YOU!! :-)


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
