Nope, to do the snowflakes I just used a tapestry needle and kind of just sewed it on, like the mitten was a piece of fabric. I crossed over the up and down line with the sideways and diagonal lines a couple of times, and that helped to hold it down. I just kind of made it up, but I'm sure anything would work.

I like 'em both, but I have to admit I don't understand what open mittens are for. My fingers are what gets cold on me.

I made 'em for when I'm typing papers. It gets cold in my dorm, and although I'd really like to be able to wear something over my fingers, gloves are too bulky to type with. They still keep the rest of my hands warm!

Lana, my dd lives in Germany, where they don't seem to believe in central heat or air. She likes wearing wrist warmers or fingerless mitts to keep her hands warm, but her fingers free to work, when at work in the office.
