thanks Ingrid and FG - super easy pattern - that's some of the yarn I got from that garage sale ;) the yarn Ingrid was salivating over!

Glad to see it was put to good use! I see I still like it, too.

Now how about a 'thumbs up' for your poor cold-thumbed kiddies?

Oh, wow, those look great! I'm glad to see them since I'm in the middle of making that same pattern for my dd right now. I'm using a skein of red Wool-Ease I had on hand. It's my first attempt at a mitten or fingerless mitten. I thought they'd be much harder. :D

Those are very cool, but I have to ask a question... why does one want glove w/o fingers?! :roflhard:

Oh..when your hands are cold I guess then. That makes sense. I don't have that problem here. Indeed I've always lived here and have only seen it snow a couple times! :shock: ;)

I guess you don't need gloves or mittens too often! Grrrrrrrrrrrr! OK, deep breath. I won't hold it against you. :rofling: Sometimes you want a glove for driving and such, but also want to have your fingers available. I like the idea of flip-top mittens, so you can have a choice to cover the fingers, or not.

thanks everyone!

and femmy! wooowzers!

I like them for driving and for going to the store - you don't have to take them off at all and you can still pick up stuff at the grocery store (and your LYS), and sign a receipt (can you tell what I did today sporting them!?!) ;)

I am planning on making myself a pair for the office - in the AM its normally around 55-60 degrees in there, and I work on a laptop all day, so they owuld be perfection!
