The Snowflake gloves are for a friend who mentioned to me in passing how she liked them...how her hands are cold at work but with typing she can't wear gloves.

The other pair is a set that I've been wanting to make for a long time and over Thanksgiving I finally made the time for them. :teehee:

Patterns:
Snowflake Fingerless Gloves (http://squeakyweasels.blogspot.com/2007/01/lace-fingerless-office-gloves-for.html)(the white pair made in Wildfoote sock yarn)
Mods: I didn't do the fingers, I made them for a friend who seen a pair and really liked them fingerless.

Drops Wrist Warmers (http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=98&d_id=8&lang=en)(the grey, black, creme, and purple pair-baby alpaca D.K.)
Mods: I changed how the thumb was worked. I CO 40sts and then worked up to 48sts. (Picture is them un-blocked)

Those are both great pairs of fingerless gloves. Your friend should really be pleased that your made her the lacy look mitts.

Very purdy. I, too, like wrist warmers without the fingers. When I'm typing, the fingers are too bulky.
