FO: Magic Loop fingerless mitts
I'm pretty smitten with myself right now for finishing these. This was my first experience with small-diameter circular knitting AND forming gussets. Oh, AND following a pattern. Any constructive criticism is encouraged and appreciated

And sorry about the links. Image tags within the post are just not working with my computer right now.

Thanks KMA!!!!! I love fingerless mitts too! So useful, and I found out that although fingerless mitts obviously are missing the fingers, they keep the most susceptible part of your hand warm. Apparently, although your fingers will get frostbite before the palms of your hands, the best way to keep from getting frostbite in your fingers is to cover your palms.....they lose 30% of body heat, with the head and feet being at 35% each.
