"There's got to be a better way", I thought to myself... It was then that I decided to knit myself a pair of fingerless gloves. Sure...I could do that! Bought the pattern; bought the (sock) yarn; bought the (yikes) size 2 double pointed needles. I was ready.
It really only took me a couple of weeks to finish both of them and not without a few mistakes, tear outs and some very choice words. So, here is the end result---
I really fell in love with the yarn and the great colors...and it hides some of the imperfections.
I had to add a clear snap to each flap so that they didn't just fly around. I was getting them caught in the register drawer! Awkward.The end result may not be perfect and maybe only I can see the mistakes, but I am very proud of myself for actually finishing this project! AND, I got tons of compliments on them at work. Unfortunately, I didn't have them for the whole winter and haven't needed to wear them in about 2 weeks but I know they will keep my hands nice and comfy next time I need them.
As always, thanks for stopping by.
(p.s...I still can't get my blog background changed!)
