Yes, of course my Dickens challenge requires accessories!

Since I decided to follow Lucy’s lead and do the Dickens challenge, I wondered if I could mark it in some special way. I’m a bit of a sucker for accessories and accoutrements. I bought special pencils for Proust, and I have a special hat I wear for writing and thinking. So, what better way to evoke the ambience of Victorian squalor than a pair of hand-knitted charcoal fingerless gloves.


Fingerless gloves add that perfect touch of Dickensian squalor to your look, and are so much easier to manage than consumption or rickets.

Psssst! You can see how we’re getting on with our Dickens Challenge here!
