Mermaid Fingerless Gloves are finished!
Started 2/5/08
Finished 3/5/08
Yarn: Fleece Artist Sea Wool
They are so warm and cozy and snugly! I am SO glad that I am finished with this knit. I got lost in the pattern and had to tink quite a few times. On the second glove I did there were moments when I wanted to frog the whole project. I doubt I will EVER knit another pair of these again. I just didn't enjoy it. BUT... let me tell you, I am glad I did them, I love wearing them. They are awesome and the pattern is great! You can find the pattern for the socks on Knitty.com. I just modified the sock pattern into fingerless gloves (as did many other people on Ravelry.) I winged the thumb and knew I wanted fingers or knucks.
They are super snug and very warm.
Now watch....next week it's going to be 60 freakin' degrees or something and I won't be able to wear them. But hey, if it hurries along spring, I'm all for it!

Fantastic! The colors are simply gorgeous and you did such a lovely job.

Don't worry, it's only March. We're guaranteed at least one more big snowstorm.
