I have some fingerless gloves I knitted ages ago from rainbow yarn. A friend noticed them and asked me to knit her some. I hate knitting for other people so I told her I don't where I can get the yarn anymore (which is true anyway). They bug me a bit though because they are acrylic, and I have become a snob. Also being acrylic, they aren't all that warm.
So I thought, well I'll just knit myself some more fingerless gloves, which would be a fun thing to do. And I could give her the rainbow ones if she likes them that much. I am trying to be the sort of person who only has one of each thing you see. And encouraging the children to be the same. Because it is much easier to find your gloves in the hat/scarf/glove/crap basket, if you only own one pair each.
So here is the first one
I'll put the pattern up if you like.
