Fingerless gloves

I am so excited that I finished these cozy fingerless gloves just in time for my trip to Lake Tahoe!

For the past couple years my design firm has maintained a steady stream of work in the Tahoe area, thus making me a frequent visitor. At the height of a project we visit the job site monthly and up here they don’t stop construction in the winter. I’m always impressed by how tough our construction crews are. They work full days… outdoors… without heat, and when I am here I try to keep up without too much complaining. So when I caught myself whimpering about cold hands (gloves make it too hard to take notes), I realized there was a perfectly good solution. These little gems will allow me to sketch, scribble and scrawl while keeping my hands toasty warm!

The pattern is a slightly modified version of Lion Brand’s Cottage Wrist Warmers. I simply continued the ribbing to make them longer and I also used a slightly bulkier yarn.
