It all started when the art teacher at work showed me some super cool fingerless gloves a friend of hers gave her for Christmas. They were the neatest things. I had been admiring other people's gloves before online, but never seriously looked at a pattern to make. Definitely not knitted ones. So when I saw my coworker's gloves, live and in-person, I decided to make a go for it. Tonight I finished up the second glove, and I love the pair. The color is sapphire, which is my birthstone. No, they're not perfect, but it's a start. Where did I find the pattern? On YouTube. It was a howcast.com video. If you're interested in this simple pattern, go here.
Ok, you know these aren't my hands. A coworker friend and I took another coworker out for ice cream for her birthday. She was gracious enough to let me photograph my gloves on her. :-)
